An aquatic macrophyte affecting nuisance chironomid midges in a warm-water lake



An aquatic macrophyte affecting nuisance chironomid midges in a warm-water lake



Environmental Entomology 121: 266-269



A quantitative and qualitative comparison of chironomid midge production was made between a portion of a residential-recreational lake in San Bernardino County, California, kept free of aquatic macrophytes and a portion of the lake containing dense stands of aquatic weeds. Throughout the study period, larval density and adult emergence were greater in the weed-free than in the weed-infested portions of the lake; Tanytarsus spp. was the dominant species from April to June.
