MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Anyone who spent some time outdoors this past weekend dealt with them. Swarms of midges or lake flies are making it a challenge to truly enjoy what the outdoors has to offer.
On Milwaukee’s lakefront, there’s a good, clean eco-system. The bad news is, those lake flies like that too.
“If the water’s polluted and has a lot of debris and things like that they don’t do so well,” said Randy Allen of Wil-Kil Pest Control. “It’s been a good year. It’s been very wet and they’re just out.”
