How Are Non-Biting Midges Different From Mosquitos? 

Non-biting midges are also known as “blind mosquitoes” because they look similar to mosquitoes but do not bite. Non-biting midges often appear around bodies of water, as do mosquitoes. However, midges do not have the proboscis (the needle-like sucking mouthparts) of mosquitoes. Unlike mosquitoes, midges do not bite or transmit diseases. However, they are nuisance pests because they often appear in swarms. 

Non-biting midges may congregate on vegetation, under porch alcoves, and on walls of your home and other buildings. These swarms can be so dense that they interfere with outdoor activities and stain the walls, cars, or other surfaces on which they gather. 

Where You Can Find Non-Biting Midges

Non-biting midges congregate near bodies of water. If you live near a pond, you may be more likely to have non-biting midges swarm on your property or fly around this body of water. Non-biting midges are a part of nutrient-rich aquatic habitats, so you cannot remove them altogether. However, you can reduce or prevent breeding habits from forming if you are concerned about the booming population of non-biting midges on your Baltimore property.

Non-Biting Midge Control Services in Baltimore 

There are many Baltimore non-biting midge control services. When you work with Scientific Plant Service, our experts will evaluate your property to determine the best solutions for your problem. There are many ways to control non-biting midge populations, including: 

Midges love to breed in nutrient-rich habitats. Excessive fertilizer that leads to runoff in the soil near ponds or streams can supply those bodies of water with ample nutrients that contribute to midge development.

The insecticides used are similar to ones that kill mosquitoes. Larvicides, such as Bti (bacillus thuringiensis israelensis), kill off the larvae. This environmentally friendly control agent does not affect non-target organisms, which makes it safe to use in the presence of other aquatic animals.
