Have you got a pond or any standing water anywhere? Or a permanently soggy and wet area, say from a leaking pipe or similar? Mosquitoes like rank, smelly water for breeding in, and will hang around anywhere damp.

where i used to live we had gnats and we had no pond. gnats come out on the warm weather and at night from about 4pm
they will get eaten by birds
