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 dark 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.

Worried about mosquitoes? Call us and we’ll arrange a visit from one of our technicians to assess the midge or mosquito control problem and recommend a way to get them to buzz off.
