Mosquitoes and midges

Everyone knows how annoying – and painful – midges and mosquitoes can be. Somehow, no matter how many you manage to swat, there always seem to be some that manage to get through to give you a nasty, itchy bite or two.

Here are some facts that you might want to know about these nasty little insects:

  • They can develop from eggs to adults in just six to ten days.
  • They are found close to still water, where their larvae feed and develop.
  • They seem to be attracted to bright colours.
  • Mosquitoes will normally bite you at dawn or dusk – or if you’re unlucky, both. That’s when their internal clocks tell them it's feeding time.
