7183. Very small fly/moth? that I have recently started to find in my house. Seem to come out in the evening and are attracted to my living room lamp light. They just hang on the walls. Seem to multiple quickly as there were at least 10 last night. I can’t seem to find them in the day. Have translucent looking wings with a reddish head. VICTORIA, British Columbia Canada
Number 7183. This is a non-biting midge (Diptera: Chironomidae). If you live anywhere near water, you likely will be seeing a lot more of these as their larvae are aquatic, like their cousins, mosquitoes.
