    Gnats are indeed a type of fly. They belong to the "two wing family" They are drawn to decay and moisture. They can spread disease like flies. I think only a few suck blood like the black fly or Scotlands "no-see-ums"

    Here is a link to some detailed info.

    No... Nats are those small annoying things that fly around your house and flys are those big annoying things that fly through your house.

    I posted the link. I just skimmed it so I may have misread something but I understood it to say that "Gnat" is a generalization.
    Some might think that gnats are just one type of insect. That is not true. Several small flying insects qualify as gnats. Gnats are from the Diptera family, meaning two wing, and are a type of fly.

    No. House flies are larger than gnats.



    The housefly (also house fly, house-fly or common housefly), Musca domestica, is a fly of the suborder Cyclorrhapha. It is the most common of all domestic flies, accounting for about 91% of all flies in human habitations, and indeed one of the most widely distributed insects, found all over the world; it is considered a pest that can carry serious diseases.

    house fly


    A gnat (play /ˈnæt/) is any of many species of tiny flying insects in the Dipterid suborder Nematocera, especially those in the families Mycetophilidae, Anisopodidae and Sciaridae.

    In British English the term applies particularly to Nematocerans of the family Culicidae. The common gnat is the species Culex pipiens. Male gnats often assemble in large mating swarms or ghosts, particularly at dusk.
