Fungus gnat

6699.      Hello. I am interested to know what this species is so we know how to address them from entering our facility. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We have contacted local pest control but we are not confident they have identified it correctly and looking for a second opinion. The deem this to be a midge but it looks more like a flying ant. Any help would be appreciated. Fort St John, British Columbia. Canada


Number 6699.  This looks like a fungus gnat of some kind. Indoors, their larvae most often are found in very wet soil of potted plants. If you have potted plants on the premises, you should allow the soil to dry out as much as practical between waterings and this will keep their population from building up.
