    Could be mixing bugs up here. Midges are small, hard to see on their own.Hence the US name Noseeums. The black bugs often called midges are more likely to be Thrips(Thunderflies) The Eurpean midge bringing the stock disease is in the south having been blown over and surviving our winters,now in south Yorkshire.

    Lets just hope that someone with some of the deadly ones you get abroad, doesn't get bitten and infects our native Midge/Mozzies.

    The like of Ebola, Hemoragic Fever, Monkey Pox, etc.
