A customer recently made an inquiry about midges or otherwise known as sand flies. They are similar to mosquitoes, and do also bite and as I was not 100% sure I decided to do some research on Google. They are described as being a similar in size to the mosquito and are often mistaken for mosquitoes and they do bite. The good news is that they are not likely to transmit disease, only leaving sometimes very itchy bites.
I found a really good website at Byron Shire Council so if you would like to know more then click on the link
