Piles?[edit]

Untitled[edit]

i'm sorry, i gotta ask. malodorous piles? what are we talkin' here? inches, feet, metres? grams, pounds, tons? jeez, ethel, look where you're goin'! damn near ran into that pile of chironomidae! ;-). Toyokuni3 (talk) 23:11, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Genera list[edit]

The list of chironomid genera is incomplete and has little information value as long as so few genera have their own pages. As new genera are described nearly constantly, I propose to have the list removed from the article. A list of subfamilies are more than comprehensive enough for a general encyclopedia.

And, one other thing: Why is this subject rated as low-importance? Chironomids are, after all, the most abundant freshwater insects in the world!--Gunnar Mikalsen Kvifte (talk) 16:25, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

I agree with removing the list of genera. Vox Sciurorum (talk) 00:03, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Screaming/squeaking[edit]

I fould some bloodworms in a tanker of water I was throwing away, (probably not this species) and I could hear them screaming, do they normally scream?--Lerdthenerd wiki defender 11:45, 13 December 2010 (UTC

no!

ecology[edit]

section is mostly about what eats them....little lame?

False references[edit]

The references to chironomids being called american and canadian soldiers both refer to the mayfly, an unrelated insect.71.93.220.235 (talk) 23:06, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
