Gilbert Residents Bothered By Swarms Of Midge Flies

Imagine sliding the screen door open and walking into the backyard, ready to some gardening or trimming or eating. And then it happens…you’re hit by a wall of insects, as midge flies relentlessly buzz around your head.

That’s how a group of Gilbert residents living near the town’s South Water Recharge Facility has been feeling. Water Resources Manager Eric Braun spoke about what the city’s doing to deal with the problem.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
