They drive you mad not only when they manage to bite you but keeping you awake at night with their constant buzzing. The name is Spanish and means little fly. Thousands of species feed on the blood of various kinds of hosts, mainly vertebrates, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and even some kinds of fish.
