Chironomid midges (Diptera, Chironomidae) as pests and their management



Chironomid midges (Diptera, Chironomidae) as pests and their management



Zoologicheskii Zhurnal 75(11): 1653-1667



Rising eutrophication of natural and man-made aquatic ecosystems resulting from natural and anthropogenic factors in recent years has led to increasing the numbers of aquatic chironomid midges in many regions of the world. Adult midges cause nuisance problems, human allergies and have a severe economic impact. Nearly 100 of the 4000 known chiromonid species are documented as pests.
