Midges are small, gnat-like insects often found near wetlands. Non-biting midges don’t carry disease, but can cause a nuisance in residential areas, due to their attraction to lights. Midges can swarm in large numbers. However, these mating swarms are usually short-lived and tend to disperse within a few days.
If you’d like more information about midges, please contact Customer Services on 9267 9267 and ask for our Midge Research Group Brochure. As midges are not disease carriers, the City of Swan’s Health Services do not treat for them.
