Please help identity

Asked September 20, 2019, 8:10 PM EDT

Hi. I've had these little pests in my home around the kitchen and in my master bathroom for a few months. They are a bit larger than an average-sized gnat. I've tried many different things to rid the rooms of these pests but have, thus far, been unsuccessful. Can you identify it for me? Thanks!!!

These are likely phorid flies and are associated with drain issues or a leaky pipe.
