The drain fly are small true flies (Diptera) with short, hairy bodies and wings giving them a "furry" moth-like appearance.
The adults live for about 20 days, during which they will breed only once. Adults lay their eggs just above the water line
inside moist drains. Sometime later, these eggs hatch into drain worms.
The dark 6–7 mm long larvae are similar to those of mosquitoes in that they breathe through a small tube
located at the back end of their narrow, maggot-like bodies.
These larvae can sometimes be seen crawling along the moist edges of crevices in shower stalls or bathtubs.
The insects complete their pupation stage submerged/ wet, and the adults then hatch at or under the waterline.
