Well, no you can accomplish the job very well yourself. First of all make sure that these flies are present in your drains. The drains usually have U-traps that form a seal by holding a little bit of water in the U shaped bend. The standing water could contain thousands of larvae. You can take a tape and cover the drain. But make sure to prick some holes in it. Otherwise, the flies won’t try to escape. If you find their little bodies on the tape later, then the drain is their source. In that case clean the drain of food and slimy residue with a cleaning agent and a brush. You can use also undiluted bleach in the bathroom drain which is effective in killing drain flies.
