    It's a "joke" about midges. I suspect that you have not encountered them before, but the female midge needs to 'suck' blood for her eggs to fertilize.

    In certain parts of the UK and around the world, you get clouds of them, so, in fact if enough bit you, they could 'drain' all your/enough blood to kill you.

    In other parts of the world they spread diseases, like Malaria, etc. When they bite the disease is passed to you.
