FUNGUS GNAT DESCRIPTION
Fungus gnats are small, dark, short-lived flies, of the families Sciaridae, Diadocidiidae, Ditomyiidae, Keroplatidae, Bolitophilidae, and Mycetophilidae (order Diptera); they are sometimes placed in the superfamily Mycetophiloidea.
The larvae of fungus gnats feed on plant roots and fungi, which aids in the decomposition of organic matter. The adults are 2–5 mm long and are important pollinators that can help spread mushroom spores as well as plant pollen. It is well documented that they carry on their feet diseases such as pythium. They may be quite annoying to humans as they fly into their faces, eyes, and noses. Ridding the home of the fungus on which they thrive is recommended.
