June 21, 2011:  (From
Calvert County Mosquito Control)  

Town Hall has been receiving numerous complaints about "mosquitoes", although most are not mosquitoes but instead they are midges and crane flies.  Mosquitoes do not congregate on walls, cars, screens, etc., like midges do.  Midges (see photo) look very similar to  mosquitoes, but they do not bite and are merely a nuisance.  We cannot spray for midges as they are not a health concern pest.
