Thank you for your comment; you are correct that there are such things as biting gnats. The article you cite, however, is from California, where in the Central Valley there is a common outdoor ceratopogonid biting fly. This article should not be taken to mean that such flies are common everywhere, or at all times. Also, these flies are outdoor, not indoor biters. Every call or post is a little different and answers are tailored to each person based on the information provided.
