No see ums
11 July 2018
Armin Elbers came with his own experiment, trying to discover a new species group. He is looking for Culicoides emerging from reindeer faeces. Culicoides are biting midges, also known as no see ums. He is prepared a nice bedding from which they could emerge and brought special tents where they will be trapped if they move to the light. It would be a big disappointment for people living her if we got a lot of biting insects due to global warming. So far there are not so many on Svalbard. However for science it would be an interesting dicovery.
