Sara from Roswell, Ga writes,

Is Invade Hot Spot the product I need for drain fly larvae in a grout line?

I have drain fly larvae (black "worms") coming out of cracks between the floor and wall of my upstairs master bath shower. Even a few about an inch up in a wall crack. So I need to treat that area as well as the drain. Will the hot spot foam along with the gel in the drain work for this problem? I was told to put a dehumidifier in for a week to totally dry out the tile area before regrouting. Should I do this before or after treatment?


The Invade Hot Spot should do a great job eliminating the drain fly larvae in the areas you mentioned. We recommend that you eliminate all of the larvae before grouting to avoid any issues.
