The Lamp Lab of the Department of Entomology at the University of Maryland is investigating reports of nuisance black flies, also known as "gnats," throughout the state of Maryland. Our objectives are to determine where in the state black flies create problems for residents, to find the primary larval habitats of the flies, and to examine why black flies are a more severe nuisance in some communities than others.
