:I found a link to a bunch of posts about them for you:

:http://forum.kingsnake.com/corn/messages/55127.html

:I had them earlier this year. Little black gnat looking things. Annoying as hell! But according to what I have read pretty much harmless. (Unless you harm yourself swatting at the nasty little beggars!) They apparently like the moisture in the moss hides I had given some of the snakes (Apparently snake feces is a real treat for them too). I started spraying "provent-a-mite" in each tank every time I clean the tanks as a preventative. (look in the supply classifieds, most of the bigger places sell it on-line) Seems to be working, I rarely see any more little black gnats, and if I see one I take it as a sign that I need to clean the tanks in that room!

:Good luck!
