No, that’s not dirt, it’s a swarm of mayflies that’s invaded Ohio

Believe it or not, those are bugs!Mayflies are hatching and invading northeastern Ohio. The swarm was so dense that it was captured on the weather radar of WOIO-TV on Wednesday.AdvertisementThese mayflies come from the waters of Lake Erie. According to the Ohio Sea Grant research and education program, the mayflies begin as eggs burrowing in lake sediment, and after a year or two, they swim to the surface, emerging fully winged. Adult mayflies vary in size from a quarter-inch to an inch long.
