Adult Chironomid   MIDGES, MUGGIES & MOSQUITOES
Because of heavy rains last year, the annual swarming of midges (muggies or gnats) have started earlier than usual. The midges we experience here are small flies from the family Chironmidae, they are quite harmless and in most species the adults do not feed at all. But they are attracted to light and can be a great nuisance.
RAMPOA regularly receives complaints about this nuisance, but there is nothing RAMPOA can do about it. There are so many water bodies in the area where they can breed - Rietvlei, the Diep River, wetlands, ponds, pools, dams and just plain damp areas.

Recycling in Royal Ascot
Residents may recall that a few years ago RAMPOA's application to be included in the City's Think Twice refuse recycling programme was turned down. Since that time the City has expanded the programme successfully to Atlantis, and RAMPOA is now again submitting an application for the City to include Royal Ascot in the programme.
Many precincts have their own recycling programmes running very successfully, and they are encouraged to continue those programmes, as the introduction of the Think Twice programme will take a considerable period. Should the programme be introduced, precincts may still continue with there own recycling programmes, particularly as some are getting some income out of these.

Plans for building alterations
