CHIRONOMID MIDGES (Mosquito Stolen Identity!)
Chironomids are also known as "Non Biting Mosquitoes" which closely resemble a mosquito. In parts of the country and Canada they are known as "Blind Mosquitoes".
When adult Chironomids emerge in high numbers they can become a pest by damaging paint, brick and other porous surfaces with their feces.
Unlike mosquitoes they DO NOT bite people or animals. In the spring and other times of the year when environmental conditions are right around aquatic environments, high numbers of Chironomids can be be mistaken for mosquitoes and generate many service requests.
