Getting Rid of Small Flying Biting Insects

For about a week now something has been biting my arms and legs at night. Not just in my bed, but on my couch. They bite more when the lights are off. I know it isn't bed bugs because I have experienced those before. I know where and what to look for to find those, and nothing has turned up.

Whatever it is can fly because it bites parts that aren't touching the furniture as well as those that are, and I never feel a crawling sensation. I have noticed small flying insects around the house. Mostly just a few fruit flies or drain flies that I have been killing off.

But, there have been a few small, dark-winged bugs as well. They look like small flies, with a triangular shape when at rest. Aside from that, a small speck occasionally flies past my phone screen or laptop screen if the room is dark. It almost looks like a dust mote, but it moves quickly. I have yet to catch anything actually on me or my bed, but my legs and sometimes arms, end up covered in red welts similar to mosquito bites. I live in north Georgia, in a rural area. I am the only person being bitten thus far.

You are not insane!!! A second or 2 ago one just flew in front of my computer screen. Every summer "he" shows up. I never see more than one, but it surely can bite quickly. It feels exactly like a mosquito bite, but never makes a permanent itchy sore.


I can never catch it and I don't know how to kill the thing. It also goes to the sofa and nibbles if I move from my chair to the sofa. PLEASE IS THERE SOMEONE WHO HAS FOUND A WAY TO GET RID OF THESE BITING FLYING THINGS.

To aerynzaher in N.Georgia. Did you get any answers on the eradication of these tiny, flying bugs? I think this is the same thing happening to me and it's insane nuisance here. I thought it was related to bugs found in new construction wood (I took video of them crawling out). I just put in new Hickory hardwood floors and not sure if the timing relates to them coming from the wood or out in the field where I am. There seem to be swaths of these bugs flying in air and they will dive bomb you and the bite is like a bad pinch feeling. Your entry is 2016 and it's now Aug 2018 so prob never see this - but like others on these posts - total annoyance and considering fumigating the place to end this nightmare.
