About this deal

If you live where midges are native (near a lake or pond), these pests can be difficult to control.

The biting ones look like tiny flies. It’s important to distinguish between biting and non-biting midges, and midges vs. mosquito. After a truly mind boggling year it looks as though we're on the right side of this corona madness. And with that our minds inevitably turn to thoughts of our next adventure in the great outdoors. But there's just one thing that can put a bit of a dampener on those seriously epic views found only in the Scottish Highlands. Well, more accurately, a swarm of things. Are midge bites serious?Midge bites are harmless but if the skin around the bite becomes broken it could become infected. In late spring or early summer, (as day length and temperature increase) there is then a short pupal stage which takes 1-2 days. After this stage, the adult midge will emerge. Most midges, apart from the gall midges ( Cecidomyiidae), are aquatic during the larval stage. Some Cecidomyiidae (e.g., the Hessian fly) are considered significant pests of some plant species. The larvae of some Chironomidae contain hemoglobin and are sometimes referred to as bloodworms. [11]

Here are a few simple ways: When a female biting midge finds a potential target, she also releases pheromones to her other female friends to come join the party.

You can actually see them turn color as they feed on your skin. They’ll look like tiny bugs that are turning red.Like crooks and criminals in dark alleys, midges tend to favour secluded, shaded spots. When pitching your tent or taking a pit stop on your hike, try to find a spot that’s more exposed. Since the bite is small, you only need to use a little. Using more will do more harm than good. Follow the label and use it as it says. Note that the non-biting midges look very different from the biting ones. The non-biters look like mini mosquitoes.
