Can someone please tell me what noseeums are? The dictionary is no help. I assume they're some kind of insect, and would like a more scientific name. Also I assume they're something we don't have in southern California. Thanks.

Noseeums is a catch name for any small flying insect, like "bug". They are also called midges and sandflies. Here is a Wikipedia article about them. Be glad you don't have to deal with them as they are very unpleasant.

Don't feel bad. I didn't know what they were either so I looked them up. They are a small bug that look almost like a gnat. I live in the Midwest and we don't have them either. Gnats yes, noseeums, no. Try looking them up on Google. They generally provide your info with pics. Hope this helps you out. :-) California sounds lovely right about now. It's getting cooler here!!

no-see-um is supposedly the name given to tiny gnats by Native Americans years ago.
