Hi there,

I started seeing these small flies around my home a few weeks ago and they've proliferated. They're about a millimeter long, and keep flying at bright lights (like computer monitors) or people. I kill 5 or 6 a day, and am not sure if they bite. When they fly by your ear, it makes a similar buzzing noise as a mosquito, and its disconcerting. They seem to keep flying at people's faces which is super annoying.

I got one intact, and took a macro photograph with my camera.

Was curious about what they were and how to get rid of them.
