Insects around plumbing pipes

Having problems with black insects around pipes in laundry room walls.

How might I deal with this?

  1. In the past we have found that little black flies (we call them drain flies) around drains are attracted to the organic growth in your drains. An effective way to get rid of them is first to have your drain thoroughly cleaned. Next, sanitize the drain with a bleach concentrate. Lastly remove any remaining organic build up. We found a product great for this was Biosmart. We bring it in from the states on a regular basis. Contact us at the Gentlemen Plumbers if you would like some.
