No-See-Ums - Biting Insect Library

No-See-Ums

No-See-Ums are also referred to as Biting Midges, Biting Gnats, Punkies or Sand Flies. They are so small they can get through screens on windows and doors.  Besides causing painful bites, they can also be vectors of diseases, particularly in tropical regions.

 

Even if a No-See-Ums is not a vector of disease, it can still be a pest, ending up in a person’s mouth, nose, ears and eyes.

 

 

 

Geography

Where do No-See-Ums live?  

 

No-See-Ums can be found throughout the world. There are about 4,000 to 5,000 currently known species of these biting midges.  Their range includes tropical, sub-tropical, sub-Saharan and temperate regions, as well as areas with cooler climates.

 

These annoying little vectors can be found in fresh water habitats as well as salt-water marshes, depending on the preference of the species.  

 

Learn about the No-See-Ums breeding cycle and how to control No-See-Ums.
