Very annoying face bug that multiply around heat humidity and green brush.


What are they called in english, or scientifically? I don't think they are a true gnat, are they?

In northern Mexico they are commonly known as "bobitos." In English they would be considered a gnat. Gnat is not the name of any one insect but any of a group of tiny flying insects. I have never seen them identified as to which species we have here but they would be from the dipterid suborder Nematocera, If you can get a good photo of one maybe it can be identified.

 Their purpose in being is enter your eyes, ears, nose and mouth and food. Sometimes while cooking outside or BBQing, we call them "bobitos fritos". Kinda taste like chicken? Or whatever else you might be cooking, LOL. Common translation that I use, Li'l bistards?? Ynot

I looked for ways to trap them on the internet, and of course all the maryjane growers had a lot of dyi ytube videos, so it looks like our buddies also like to get high.

I had a yellow shirt on yesterday, so it was like I was a hamburger attracting flies.The videos showed that Yellow and other bright flower colors attract them, but they don't like blue.
