Midges breed in damp and breed mostly during the warm summer months. When we do midge counts it indicates the breeding patterns and we understand that the highest breeding period is between Feb and March. Midges are so wide spread that short of chemcal warfare when you would devistate the ecology of the area there is no way to eliminate them. The best protection measure is to put some sort of barrier between your horses and the midges during outbreak period. 80% shade cloth has proven to be most effective.
