Drain flies carry on their life cycle in the gunk that builds up in drains. You may need to remove the drain cover and scrub off the accumulated gunk.

Please also read our website's publication, "Flies in and around the House" for more ideas: http://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/non_HGIC_FS/HG26_fli...
