    In my house we're starting to get some very small flies flying around the house. We had this problem before but we sprayed some plants of ours and it stopped but we tried that this time and it doesnt seem to be working. Doesn't anyone know of a solution?

    They're very very small bugs. I'd say 1-2mm. You can kill it with your hands and not even feel a thing because they're so tiny. But it's just plain annoying.

    Look for holes in window screens. Also, check around the outside of the house to see if there is a place they are gathering. Then either spray where you find them, or spray an area around your windows and doors (or both).

    Of course, it could be they are small fruit flies and coming in with the groceries...so take out your garbage from the inside of the house every night (or tie off the bags tightly every night).

    yeah, sounds like fruit flies. Check for any older fruit, try putting it all in the fridge instead of out on the counter.

    Plus it might be a good idea to empty out and scrub your trashcan, could have some breeding grounds going on.
