The Coastal Discovery Museum will host John D. Edman for "No-see-ums, the Most Irritating Residents of the Lowcountry" at 3 p.m. Nov. 13.
No-see-ums, often referred to as sand fleas or biting midges, are a unique part of the ecology of the Lowcountry, according to the museum. Edman's presentation will explain their life history and closely-related blood-feeding flies found in the Lowcountry, including when and where they are most active and what people can do to protect themselves, according to a news release.
The program is $7 per person (ages 12 and older only). Reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767, extension 223. The museum is at 70 Honey Horn Drive, Hilton Head Island.
