Small black flies around 2mm long run over the soil surface or fly slowly around houseplants, pot plants and borders. Fungus gnats attack the roots of virtually all houseplants, pot and border plants including vegetables, ornamentals, fruits, fungi and even weeds.
Practice good plant hygiene by removing any old, dead leaves and fungal growth from the top of pots. The larvae are common in the moist soil of the plants that have been overwatered and the soil remains wet or very moist. Question: I have these tiny green bugs with wings that I keep finding in one room in my house. Question: My apartment has been invaded by these tiny flying insects (I think they are gnats).


If the flies are small, black, and flying around windows or potted plants; then they are probably fungus gnats. This may occur in the fall when plants are brought inside for the winter, or in the winter when house plants (or office plants) are overwatered. If the flies are small, light brown and seem to be attracted to places in the kitchen, then they are probably fruit flies. If the flies are small, light brown to black, and have a rather jerky or erratic walking behavior when they are on a surface (they run in a zig-zag rather than a straight line) then they may be phorid flies.
To control these flies you have to start with the removal of overripe fruit and vegetables; this is where the larvae live. We recently bought two new house plants and it seems that most of the flies are in the same room.


To remove the adults, which can live for a few weeks, you can place a small amount of vinegar in a shallow pan, and place this pan in locations where the flies are common.
They are similar in size to fruit flies, but the walking separates them, and they seem to be active at night, while fruit flies are not. Phorid flies usually have a direct connection to a broken sewer line (inside or outside the house). If these are the flies you have, it is best to get the sewer or septic tank system looked at.
