Interpretive Summary: Abstract Only.
Technical Abstract: The ability of biting midges to locate a target by olfactory emissions of the target is inhibited by dispensing into a spatial area an inhibiting effective amount of at least one inhibiting compound selected from the group consisting of 3-methyl-1-alkene-3-ols of the formula ##STR1## and 3-methyl-1-alkyn-3-ols of the formula: ##STR2## wherein R.sup.1 and R.sup.2 are each independently a saturated or unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbon group containing from 1 to about 12 carbon atoms.
