Identifying Little Black Flying Bugs?

In the last week I have been finding these little black flies either in my window sills or in sticky traps near windows/skirting boards. I live in a first floor flat and have no indoor plants. I'm finding about 10 a day. Any idea what they are please?

These look like the Ensign wasp that comes in from outside. They are harmless and do not sting. They are just a pain when they come in from outside. The basic way to get rid of them is like you are already doing with sticky flypaper.

so if they're flies they're probably just garden variety fruit flies. Contrary to popular belief they don't just breed because of rotting fruit, but any moisture, such as in non-cleaned drains, will also cause the problem. Or if there's a fruit tree outside with rotting fruit, and that's bringing them in.

Cleaning everything thoroughly with bleach, especially in drains and other prone areas, and of course eliminating any vegetable matter (bananas) will solve the problem.
