For the past few days there has been these tiny bugs coming from my sink. At first I thought they were going to the sink – now I think they’re coming up from the pipes!! Is this possible? I’ve tried pouring bleach down the drain but that doesn’t seem to help. These are small insects that kind of look like fleas but there are thousands in my two sinks pretty much every day.
You most likely have springtails, ants, crickets, booklice, thrips or some kind of drain fly. Many insects will thrive in drain lines and for the most part, do so undetected.
But when populations get big? They’ll start migrating out to open areas like the sink and from there, countertops and then to other parts of the home.
To end the invasion, treat with our “one of a kind” down the drain treatment called SANNI SHINE. This concentrate is a true insecticide, the only one labeled for use down drains and it will kill anything that might be living/nesting/migrating through the pipes.
Add 2 oz to a gallon of water and treat all sinks, shower drains and tub drains with 1/2 gallon of the mixed solution the same night.
After the first treatment, wait 3 days and followup treating with the one sink or drain that had the problem with another full gallon.
After the first two treatments, treat as needed. In general, two treatments will end the problem BUT if you’re still seeing them 1 week after you first start, treat again and follow this process until you are no longer seeing them.
Now if by chance you start noticing them coming out of the countertop around infested sinks? Then take the Sanni Shine mixture and “wipe” down the countertop and all cracks and crevices being sure to let the treatment “soak” into the grout and gaps. This is where these pests will be surely hiding and its important all areas are covered/saturated with the mixture to end the invasion.
Sanni Shine won’t be a danger when applied to sensitive areas – even where you prepare food – because it breaks down within 20 minutes.
