|Series/Report no.:||Biting Midge Pest Calendar for Coastal NT|
|Abstract:||The mangrove biting midge, Culicoides ornatus, causes widespread pest problems in mangrove areas along the NT coast. The midges that are found around mangroves only fly in high numbers about 1.6km from mangrove areas. Biting midges do not transmit disease to humans in Australia, but they cause an itchy bite that can sometimes become infected.
