Have you experienced itchy bug bites but haven't seen mosquitoes?  If so, you may have become acquainted with one of Michigan's most disliked natural resources:  biting midges. 


Midges are also known as no-see-ums, punkies and midgies.   They are tiny (less than one-eighth of an inch), tan-colored, blood suckers that are usually found in areas near wetlands where they breed.  They will, however, extend their breeding zones  during seasons that are unusually rainy.


Midges may appear like mini fruit flies flittering around.  While their main prey is animals and other insects, they will bite people. You don't see them or feel their bite until later when the bite site becomes very itchy and sometimes painful.  The bite usually does not cause welts.
