Lily, don't know if you know (or wish to know) the thinking behind,   'it looks a bit black over Bill's mother's'.....here in the Midlands, it would be used if we see a black threating cloud in the sky.  

Edit: Hope things at work are okay.

Black flys!

....if they are outside in garden soil, they could be ants or a host of other species.

Not sure if I have this quite right, but are we taking 'soil' or compost here?

I suspect it's compost, in which case they will be fungus gnats.

Fungus gnats” (scientific name Sciaridae).....these live in potted plant compost. They can be very hard to get rid of, depending on how many infested pots you've got.

Nearly everyone who has potted plants has these flies in their homes but they sometimes become a nuisance.

Re-pot the plant completely with sterilised potting compost and spay the compost with BTi (available as 'Gnatrol' in the garden centre)

If they are in garden soil, disregard the above.
