Large Mayfly Hatch Shows Up on Radar on Quad Cities Radar

Large Mayfly hatch shows up on Quad Cities, Iowa radar.

Mayflies are flying insects with long tails and wings that look like fishing flies — or fishing flies are made to look like mayflies. They are aquatic insects with an immature stage called a nymph that lives in fresh water.

The insects are known to hatch in spring — not necessarily in May. They eventually fly above their water residence in mass numbers and live a short adult life.
