Also known as "sand-gnats", no-see-ums are tiny insects (Culicoides furens) that live near salt water and mangroves and are common in South Florida. Feeding time for these microscopic biters is at dawn and dusk and their bites are often quite painful and can leave welts.

Due to their small size and speed, no-see-ums often bite without being seen, hence their name.
