This looks like a mosquito with horns. Found in my kitchen in Enterprise Alabama. Just curious of what it is.

Hi Timothy,
The best we can do is to provide a family identification.  This is a Plume Moth in the family Pterophoridae, and it is often very difficult to identify individuals to the genus or species level.  See BugGuide for additional information on the Plume Moths.
