Name[edit]

So why is it called "sweet itch" anyway? Is it a corruption of "sweat?" Atypicaloracle (talk) 08:21, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

I have had success defending against bites by using a heavy application of suntan oil, not sunscreen, but clear type tanning oil applied heavily to the point of actually running down. It traps the little buggers like fly paper, but doesn't allow them to bite. It is messy, but serves well for outdoor work. Such use might work for livestock. Soap and water afterwards cleans the oil and trapped midges off. Where I live in SE US, we are plagued by the tiny, almost invisible variety that lives near salt water creeks and marshes.97.80.241.12 (talk) 22:01, 14 September 2011 (UTC)Andy
