They are household nuisances and spread may spread diseases, including west nile virus. Adult females can lay up to 200 at one time; they hatch in about two days. Females need the blood, not males.

Those small little mosquitoes are commonly called gnats they are a small insect that usually lives with many others. Some groups of gnats are found in the thousands but in urban and suburban areas usually in groups of ten to a hundred. They usually do not bit but have a tendency to fly toward moving things like people.
