Took the trash out.... there were a few maggots on top *turns green*

Oh ick.  :-X

I'm dealing with fruit flies in my sink drain. Admittedly, my fault for not emptying the strainer...

Oh eww.... uh... just curious but how do you get them out?

I've always had good luck with bleach down the drain. Vinegar and baking soda probably also works. And when I put the sodium hydroxide stuff down that I do every month, that'll help too.

I had a major infestation recently due to a neighbor's compost pile.

I used bleach followed by a vat of boiling water, then another dowsing of bleach.  I did that everyday for a week. Also resorted to hanging fly paper.

It took about 10 days to clear out most of them. Though I have noticed a few flying around again.
