so for the past month I've had these little flies in my condominium. I cannot for the life of me figure out where they are coming from, and I am trying to find out what type of flies they are. I've tried fruit fly traps, I've tried trapping them with bread and killing them when they sit on the bread, but they keep on coming.
I first noticed them inside my garbage can (which has a lid). I noticed maggots at the bottom of the can (the things that look like eggs) so I threw the can away. Now, I don't have a garbage can- I just put the food in a plastic bag and throw it away each night.
I have also noticed them in my freezer now too, they are somehow crawling in. They seem to hangout at my desk the most, which is where I have a big window.
So I am thinking three things: 1- they are coming from outside, 2- they are coming in from my kitchen sink drain (I have a seized up garbage disposal, maybe that's a factor too, although I never seen them come out of the drain, or 3- they are hiding under the carpet or something, or in a cabinet (not sure if possible).
I attached a photo of one that I killed today, if anybody can tell what type of fly it is please let me know. And of course, any suggestions on how to handle.
