Friends this is my review of the book Midges in Scotland by George Hendry, which I read recently. Though this is a factual book, it is a fascinating book, and would appeal to anyone who lives or has lived in an area where midges are found.
It gives all the details of the biting Highland Midge, explaining how to avoid getting bitten, along with the real reason as to why it is biting you.
The book also gives an historical overview of what has been done to try and prevent midge attacks, going from what the army did in the 1940's to the current day.
Though it is quite a small book, Dr Hendry still manages to answer most of the questions one wants to know about these horrible creatures, sorry lovely insects...
This is a fascinating read providing understanding of the ways of the midge, and a book I would recommend to anyone visiting the Highlands of Scotland, or any other location where biting midges are common. Sadly this is quite a lot.
This was a good and interesting read as book 15 week 12 fiction 14 (audio book 3) non fiction 1
