Do you have an organic bugspray I can use in my kitchen? I’m seeing a small tiny flies around the garbage pail. Also the recycling bin. They’re really tiny and I can smash them easy but they just keep coming. I don’t know where from but every day I’ll see them every time I get close to the area.
The best organic spray for use inside the home is the FLYING INSECT KILLER. It has no real residual which means it will be gone minutes after you spray it so it’s totally organic. It’s one of the safest sprays to use in the home and poses no hazard to plants or people when used properly as are most all of the products listed on the NON TOXIC PEST CONTROL site. But it does work quickly and it will do a good job on many insects including flies so it’s a good spray to start with for your problem. Basically you would just need to keep the spray handy and ready to use because you’ll need to use on a regular basis. I would recommend spraying as needed throughout the day whenever you see these tiny flies. If you keep killing all the ones you find eventually you could break their life cycle and they’ll disappear.
If you find the problem lingers longer than you’d like, you may have to use something stronger than the organic spray. A step up that’s still very safe to use would be the GENTROL AEROSOL. Gentrol is a growth regulator and not a true insecticide by any traditional definition. In fact, Gentrol won’t kill anything. So how does it work? It’s basically a juvenile growth like protein that affects young flies and other insects when they’re young and growing. Basically the concept of the Gentrol spray is that by overexposing insects to this protein they’re not able to fully grow or properly mature. The end result is that they cannot become reproducing adults. This will effectively break their life cycle and though it takes longer to see results, it’s a very effective approach and works well for roaches, pantry pests and flies along with other common household pests.
In summary, if you are able to identify just where these tiny flies are nesting, you should be able to stop the infestation quickly. These tiny guys are most likely drain flies or fungus flies as both love to nest in and around kitchens, garbage bins and other moist areas in the home. The good news is they’re easy to control with a little patience and the right product applied at the right location.
