All About Gnat
  • Gnat common name for any one of a number of small, fragile-looking two-winged flies.
  • Gnat is about 1/16" in length, shiny black to dull gray in color with yellow or orange markings on the legs and has small mouthparts and bare aristae on antennae.
  • Gnat larvae are free-living, most feeding on plants.
  • England mosquitoes are called gnats.
  • The life cycle varies from 7-28 days depending on the temperature and moisture.
  • Gnats breed in soil containing considerable organic matter, decaying vegetation, and animal excrement.
  • Often gnats enter the homes through open doors or windows. They are strongly attracted to light and observed mainly on windows in large numbers.
  • The adults are strongly attracted to moisture around the eyes and nose of people outdoors.
  • In mid-summer large numbers of gnats persistently hover around the face causing considerable annoyance.
  • All gnats have long, hairlike antennae, which are particularly well-developed
  • Gnat larvae are free-living, most feeding on plants. Larval plant feeders, e.g., the Hessian fly larvae, cause root, stem, and leaf galls to be formed by the host plant
  • Some species of fungus gnats (families Mycetophilidae and Sciaridae) are very common pests of mushrooms and roots of potted plants in homes and greenhouses.
  • One group of dipterans (family Chloropidae) of the suborder Cyclorrhapha are commonly called eye gnats, or eye flies. Gnats are classified in the phylum Arthropoda, class Insecta, order Diptera.
