Great article! The fact that the are coming back is good news for the water quality of the lake. I'd like to place this article on my CREATE WILDLIFE-FRIENDLY YARDS site, which is for the serious bird and butterfly enthusiasts. Visit us and enjoy the great articles (like this one!) and info on birds, insects and butterflies...and how to attract them to your yard. Bob.

We go to Ashtabula the first week of June every year for a walleye charter.... Bugs are bad then too. Amazing to watch all those bugs.

My family spent many summers on Lake Erie. We knew mayflies as "Canadian soldiers". I didn't know they were mayflies until I was an adult.

This was an interesting part except the mention of evolution. If evolution were true, the mayflies would never have started and died out before mating. Please keep the mention of known facts separate from propaganda such as evolution.
