HAPPY SPRING!  EARLY SPRING BRINGS OUT CHIRONOMID MIDGES:  SOMETIMES CALLED

HAPPY SPRING! EARLY SPRING BRINGS OUT CHIRONOMID MIDGES: SOMETIMES CALLED "FALSE MOSQUITOES!"

Chironomid midges are small mosquito-like flies which can emerge on warm winter or early spring days. They all have a distinguishing characteristic of a pair of brush-fern like antennae. Swarms of these midges can be seen hovering near lake shorelines and almost anywhere else there may be standing water or open running water such as free flowing irrigation laterals or drains such as Wilson Springs or Indian Creek or along the shoreline of Lake Lowell. Adult midges usually live less than a day but some may survive up to a week. They do not BITE but only emerge to mate, lay eggs and die. They may become a nuisance if they emerge in high numbers, otherwise they are harmless. Note photo of Chironomid midge adult male.
