  • i would like to know also i have these very little black fly looking things around my house. i thought they were coming from stinky diapers so i started putting them in bags and immediatly put them outside but i still see them every now and then. i think they are coming from the garbage disposal. I don't know what they are or how to get rid of them

  • Ya know, I just had a thought....Last week, I was outside with a glass of wine and I left it for only a few minutes to play. My wine was swamped with gnats! It might work on flies. It will drown them.

  • Black flies - small ones are also called sewer flies. Find the source and get it cleaned out good. Vinegar and baking soda are great.
