Get rid of drain flies fast with Drain Gel drain fly treatment. Drain Gel is a concentrated biological product specifically designed to treat organic matter build-up in sinks, drains and garbage disposals where drain flies harbor and reproduce. Each quart treats approximately two drains.
Treating drain fly problems with ordinary drain cleaners, hot water, detergents, bleach, or ammonia is ineffective. The most effective solution is the use of a highly concentrated biological product with specially selected bacteria strains. Drain Gel’s new formula contains MGD (Microbial Grease Degrader), a unique Bacillus strain that breaks down complex grease molecules. American Bio-Systems Drain Gel is highly concentrated and can be used directly in drains or in non-drain areas such as sinks, drain grates, and floors.

How Drain Gel Works
DrainGel's formulation incorporates specialized microorganisms in combination with biological support ingredients and essential growth factors. This unique formulation promotes improved performance in degradation of organic materials. The unique bacillus bacteria strain MGD (Microbial Grease Degrader) immediately multiplies and starts digesting organic waste upon application, breaking down long chain fatty acids, the primary component of problem grease. Drain Gel controls foul odors by inhibiting the normal biological production of odor-causing compounds such as hydrogen sulfide and rancid fatty acids that result from septic or anaerobic environments.
Organic buildup in drains that is the breeding site for odors, drain flies and fruit flies
PESTS CONTROLLED WITH DRAIN GEL: Odors, surface and drain scum, organic buildup
Target Uses of Drain Gel
Drain Gel removes hard to reach organic matter from drains where drain flies breed. This specially formulated product is made to cling to the inside of drains and pipes so that it may continue working for several hours instead of just draining away like other products. Drain Gel will also get rid of rank odors from drains and improve flow in slow drains. Drain Gel is safe for all types of plumbing and is non-toxic, non-pathogenic and non-caustic so you can use it with peace of mind.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Natural bacteria

Had fruit flies for 5 months that I could NOT get rid of. I used Drain Gel once and overnight the flies were gone, just like that. The directions on the bottle say to use up to two weeks for best results, and I probably should have kept using it for safe measure, but one night worth of this stuff in all our drains took care of the problem. I haven't seen a single fly for 3 months.

Drain-gel: Worked for me
By R in Kentucky on 05/02/2010
Had drain fly problem in my apartment for several months. Used sticky strips (collected lots of flies), used bleach in drains (had no effect) covered all drains when not in use, still had flies (no idea how they got past the covers). In desperation, decided to try this stuff. Put about one cup down kitchen and bathroom drains for two nights. No more flies. It's been almost two weeks now, still no flies.

It worked but
By Susan on 09/13/2008
I ordered the Drain Gel and used it in all my drains for 5 days, just like the directions say to do. They were completely gone until about 4 weeks later, the moth flies were back. I would look for something that gets rid of them and keeps them away for longer than 1 month.
In some environments such as restaurant kitchens where heavy and constant food prep is done, re-infestation may be inevitable. In these cases, the product label recommends to use 4 oz of drain gel every 2-3 weeks to maintain control.

Drain gel works!!
By John in Harvard Illinois on 07/08/2012
We had a real problem with drain flies at our home in Arkansas. It is our vacation home and it was a real chore to deal with these pests each time we arrived. I found Drain Gel online and gave it a try. It worked like magic and all the flies are gone. It is a relief to have a product on hand if the problem starts up in the future.
Product did not work for me unfortunately
By Amanda in Texas on 07/18/2016
After reading all the reviews I was excited to purchase this in hopes it would take care of my problem. Unfortunately it did not. I still have the same problem. Going to have to try and find something else again.
Not so good
By Eugene in Athens,Al. on 07/13/2016
We followed the directions and the drain flies went away for a day but soon reappeared, have since ordered another product to try.
By Joseph in rockbridge, va on 06/19/2016
used this several years ago when had a bad drain fly infestation . .took about a week to get the rascals under control and then another week to eliminate them this year, with the appearance of one puny looking fly, I gave the drain another dose . .so far the hive seems to have renounced its evil ways . .but I've got an eye on it with the proper medicine to hand
By Roya in Fairfax, Virginia on 12/05/2015
I have tried everything for the excessive amount of Drain flies in my house and nothing worked until I read "how to get rid of drain flies steps". I promise you if you follow the steps and use the GEL & IGR spray your drain flies disappear for ever. I bought 6 gallons of the blue Gel and 5 IGR spray inside the drain (follow the steps), believe me it works and it worth it because I know how annoying is to have them around the house. The product is a miracle and it ended my 3 months painful life. People say it doesn't work because they don't use it correctly.

We had a horrible infestation of fruit flies in our drain/garbage disposal in the kitchen. I saw this product online and ordered it. We used it as directed and within 2 days all the fruit flies were gone. It was amazing. Thank goodness cause I was so sick of killing fruit flies. This was a miracle product.

QDoes Drain Gel work in the toilet bowl?
I have drain flies hatching in the toilet bowl. I see the instructions call for coating the sides of the drain to eliminate buildups of grease, etc. How do you apply Drain Gel in the toilet bowl?
AYou will usually see drain flies developing in a toilet only if the toilet is not used very often. Drain Gel probably won't be the best product to use in your situation. You can turn the water off to the toilet and flush it so that the bowl and the tank are empty. Thoroughly scrub both, paying special attention to the area under the lip of the bowl and the tank. Scrubbing and cleaning these areas will help eliminate the decaying organic matter that these flies need to breed and develop in. While the toilet is drained you can apply Invade Hot Shot Foam to the tank and the bowl and let it sit overnight to clean all of the cracks and crevices that you may not be able to clean properly. Invade Hot Shot would be a good choice because it will expand to cover all of the surfaces you need to treat. This may need to be repeated a few times before you get rid of all of the gunk that can build up over time. All drains in the infested room should be treated with either Invade Hot Shot or with Drain Gel.
QDoes this product also help with the drainage flow in the drain? Mine have gotten slow. Thanks!
AYes, Drain Gel in addition to aiding in the elimination of drain flies, improves drain flow, leaving behind a fresh scent and preventing costly blockages.

QIs drain gel appropriate to use in aquarium pump and filter tubing?
I am servicing an aquarium system that has tubing that is inaccessible due to the construction of the system. They are complaining of persistent low pH in the water, and I suspect bacterial growth in the tubing is affecting the water quality. Is drain gel safe and appropriate to use in this context, or is there another product that can be used?
AWe have contacted the manufacturer and they said that they do not recommend using their drain gel in aquariums and they advised that you seek advise from a professional that deals in aquariums to find what they would use in this situation. We apologize that we could not offer more help in this situation.

QWould Drain Gel work for my drains at home to treat sand flies?
I have sand flies breeding in my drains. I've had the bug tested, and it is in fact a sand fly. I'm currently pouring bleach down my drains, it helps, but I need something that does stick, and not wash away the next day.
