Tiny flying insect

Asked February 7, 2019, 6:49 PM EST

I have tiny flying insects in the house. One or two a day and they are attracted to electronic device screens. I have attached a photo for your review. Looking for ways to locate and remove them. Thanks.

They look like fungus gnats. Check your plants for excess moisture. Drying the plants up a little will deal with most of the problem. Look around for other sources of moisture such as a basement. It got relatively warm a few days ago and it could have been just enough for the adults to from a moist area into areas where you notice them.

Thanks very much. We will follow your advice.
