Synopsis

The first edition of this book rapidly topped the list of bestsellers and has continued to sell well, turning up in places as far away as German schloses, Brisbane bedsides and Canadian log cabins! This latest edition brings the story of biting midges up-to-date with new material on the Highland midge, its biology and why it bites. Written in a highly readable but informed way, it describes how and why the midge plays such a dominant role in the ecology and human culture of the Highlands, not least in keeping the worst of human depredations under control. This work is illustrated with cartoons by BAX.
