Hello. I recently came across this worm like maggot in my bathtub while I was cleaning. Not sure where or how it got there. I then started searching the area for more and when I moved my daughters bath toys I found more. I threw the toys away! What are these? Where did they come from? How do I get rid of them? I dont wanna take a bath or shower anymore because of this.
There are many insects which can live in the drain lines of tubs, showers and sinks. My guess is you have drain flies because we’re seeing them active right now and they tend to focus on bathrooms. Fortunately controlling them is easy.
For immediate control, spray PT-CYKICK down the drain. It only takes 2-3 seconds of spray per evening. This will provide immediate control of the active maggots.
But for long term control, you’ll need to pour SURVIVORS down the drain once a week. This will “eat up” the organic matter these maggots need to live. And once you reduce their food enough, they won’t be able to survive anymore. Use Survivors down the tub along with the sink in your bathroom and make sure you don’t see any appear in other sinks as they may need treatments too.
Plan on using 3-4 oz per drain once a week, just before you retire, so the treatment can sit overnight while no one is using the sink. Do this for at least 3 weeks (4 treatments). Combined with the Cykick, this problem will be controlled.
Keep in mind bleach, ammonia and other standard household cleaners won’t help this problem which is why you need a special agent like Survivors. In fact all the soap and shampoo (which are just cleaners anyway) don’t impact them as you already know. And neither will Survivors. But Survivors will take away their food and when combined with PT-Cykick which will kill them on contact, you’ll get quick control of this problem.
