    Anyone know about bugs? Especially biting lil flying nasties.

    Ok, this has happened to me twice now this month. While digging/ grading a basement, I've stirred up gnat sized lil flying bugs.

    And lots of the stinging Or biting lil suckers! And they leave a heck of a welt! I don't get welts this bad from bees and wasps. But these tiny lil jerks tear me up.

    What could they be? They look like tiny wasps, but very plain colored. Kinda dark gray, not really black. Biggest about 1/4".

    Both times have been in clay soil. I don't have any pictures of them, as there tiny and suck.

    Any ideas would be great, I would like to eradicate everyone of the lil buggers and need to know what to name the collalation. Lol.

    Or just figure out what they are so I can run em off when I come across em again.

    Feel free to ask any questions to help on this quest and I'm in northern Indiana.

    They are too big to be No-seeums - sound sort of like what we call sweat bees...

    I know what sweat bees are. These are definitely not sweat bees. But I may of hissed the same thing.

    These are a lil smaller and live in the ground. Maybe a flying ant of some sort? Or a young stage of something? Idk, but I do know that they are a serious pain!

    I did spray off on me the next time, yes I met the lil sobs again. And that helped. Still don't know what they are and still hate em!
