Gnats are found in almost any aquatic or semi-aquatic habitat through the world. Larvae are always found in some damp location, such as under bark, in rotten wood, compost, mud, stream margins, tree holes, or water-holding plants.
Females of most species are adapted to suck blood from some kind of host animal.
