I have these things that look like baby flies
attacking my computer screen. I got rid of 4 in the last hour. Just sprayed yard and house. What are these things? How do you get rid of these annoyances?

1. Do you have an aging bag of potatoes somewhere?
That could be a source.

4. Good luck
They may be knats / gnats are hard to get rid of...they seem to appear
if you have any small plumbing leak or where it might be damp.

8. Do gnats look like baby flies?
I don't know where I have a leak, water bill the same, no puddles outside. I had them during the summer when it was over a 100

Do baby flies look like fleas? My dogs are not showing signs of fleas though and I am not either.

These just look like pesky baby flies.

9. I went outdoors
and sprayed yesterday and today, dang I just got rid of two on my screen.

Would these critters appear if maybe there is mildew around here? This has been a big topic in my area. Just wondering.
