Hi all, this is a strange one! I'm getting hundreds of small flies like midges hovering about 5ft above the centre of my lawn. Cant say when it started but they were there during the hot summer and they still appear even now on a damp cool day. I'm baffled, any ideas?



We get small gnats like this at any time of the year.

I was watching them in the sunshine under the apple tree, don't think its anything to worry about

A regular thing here too!

And here. Good for any insects that live on small flying ones!

we get them too, especially under tree canopy; annoying little blighters!The cold weather [when it comes] should see them off.
