Non-biting Midges - The non-biting midge (Chironomidae) is a small fly that closely resembles a mosquito. Although these midges are unable to pierce the skin, they can be a serious nuisance problem in urban areas, particularly along lake front communities. During peak emergence, massive swarms of midges can cover houses, cars, and other structures near lakes, ponds, and other water sources that serve as breeding habitats. Adult chironomid midges are short-lived and weak flyers and are typically found around country club lakes.
