Studies on chironomids in Lake Suwa. (2) Adult midges as nuisance insects and plans for their control



Studies on chironomids in Lake Suwa. (2) Adult midges as nuisance insects and plans for their control



Japanese Journal of Limnology 62(2): 139-149



In the area surrounding Lake Suwa, massive flights of adult midges have been recurring, causing problems in the daily life of local residents. In this paper, we gave an outline of adult midges of chironomidae in recent years, including: (1) characteristics of main chironomid species; (2) factors encouraging massive flights of midges from the lake to human habitats; and (3) the relationship between human activities and adult midges. Moreover, we examined the countermeasures for their control: (1) studies on flight behaviour and resting habit of adult midges; and (2) the field trial trapping control method of adult midges by attracting them to lights and sounds in Lake Suwa. Any plans which effectively promote the ideal of human coexistence with other organisms as auxiliary measures must be examined.
