Biting Midges (No-see-ums)

Hi I am really impressed with your website! Can you point me to more information on biting midges if they are something which could be found in our house on Salt Spring Island in April? Thanks very much,  Ann

During my 20 + years of pest control service on Salt Spring Island, I was never asked to deal with biting midges (no-see-ums).  I live on 5acres of wooded property with ponds and have never been bothered with midges. If you suspect you have a midge problem please try to capture a few and send us a close-up, in-focus photo for identification.  They are very, very small so you would probably need a camera with a macro lens.
