  • What do Swede midge do? The Basic life cycle of Swede Midge is adults emerge from the soil, mate then lay eggs on the host plants, the larvae hatch and consume the host plant, then the larva drop to the soil and pupate to emerge as new adults. In Ontario, there are typically four to five generations per year, with first flights occurring in May and last flights occurring late September to early October.
