This insect is a fungus gnat and is most likely coming from potted plant soil from an indoor plant. They also may emerge from sink drains, though this is less common. You will need to find the offending plant(s) and either get rid of them or treat the soil with a labeled insecticide. For more information, see http://citybugs.tamu.edu/files/2016/05/ENTO-050.pdf
