FANAR, Lebanon: A biting midge
, now encased in amber, bit a dinosaur 135 million years ago in what is today the country of Lebanon.
Insect vectors play an essential role in transmission; the viral genome has been detected in various field-collected biting midges
Austroconops Wirth and Lee, a lower cretaceous genus of biting midges
yet living in western Australia: a new species, first description of the immatures and discussion of their biology and phylogeny (Diptera : Ceratopogonidae).
were caught from April 2007 through May 2008 by using 89 black light traps (BG-Sentinel Trap; Biogents, Regensburg, Germany) distributed mostly in the German BT restriction zone of January 2007 (Figure 1).
This emergence of BT into parts of Europe never before affected was attributed mainly to climate change and was linked to the northern expansion of the major Old World vector Culicoides imicola (Kieffer), which is an Afro-Asiatic species of biting midge

also known as No-See-Ums.
of the genus Culicoides Latreille (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) are the most diverse group of the family Ceratopogonidae, which includes 1,366 extant worldwide species, 266 of which occur in the Neotropics (Borkent & Spinelli 2007; Borkent 2014a).
Lorraine said she had been worried about Scotland's famous biting midges
IT was a night on the Lake of Menteith when everything clicked for Dunfermline angler John Michie despite the torrential rain and clouds of biting midges
, spread through herds of ruminants across Europe during 2011-2013.
The project intends to address the risk of emerging viral vector borne diseases in two main categories of arthropods known to transmit important animal and zoonotic diseases: mosquitoes (Aedes and Culex), and Culicoides biting midges
And as a consequence, I had a quite a miserable time; hardly an inch on my body escaped the attention of the biting midges
Topics covered range from scorpions, spiders, ants, and bees to mites, ticks, lice, bed bugs, sand flies, biting midges
, mosquitoes, and horseflies.
The homogeneous disruption of individual small arthropod vectors of zoonotic diseases such as biting midges
(Diptera), fleas (Siphonaptera), or ticks (Ixodida) is typically done manually with pestles in microcentrifuge tubes, or with Dounce tissue grinders (1-3).
And it is, but it's related to the density of the biting midges
rather than deer.
