Black flies are very small, dark colored flies that bite. Up close the flies appear to have a hump behind the head when viewed from the side. The site of a black fly bite often bleeds and becomes itchy, red and swollen. These flies can be abundant around running water such as rivers and streams but do not normally occur indoors.
