Clarke’s team brings an integrated approach to controlling midges throughout their lifecycle – treating them in the adult and larvae stages in both the water and air.
Our comprehensive approach combines assessment, product treatments and nutrient abatement reccomendations within lakes, ponds and stormwater systems in addition to their surrounding communities.
Assessment: Before performing any treatment, Clarke’s team performs a series of assessments to create a comprehensive understanding of the midge infestation and the tactics it requires.
Product Control: Clarke utilizes key product strategies to control midges at the larval and adult stages. This may include ULV adulticide, barrier treatments applied to foliage or more.
Nutrient Abatement: Midge flies are attracted to waterbodies with high levels of nutrients and organic materials – both of which are present in stormwater ponds. Clarke recommends natural strategies to safely reduce these nutrient levels, making them less attractive breeding sites for midges.
Midge flies, also known as ‘blind mosquitoes’, are small, non-biting flies that form swarms and act as pests to residents trying to enjoy outdoor resources. They breed and thrive around water bodies with low dissolved oxygen rates and high levels of nutrients, making them a common stormwater system nuisance.
