Here's what Wisconsin looks like covered in millions of flies

This year's mayfly hatch in the Mississippi River reached Biblical proportions.

The mayfly emergence is an annual event in which mayflies leave the Mississippi River after one or two years of incubation. The flies live for up to 36 hours before they return to the water, lay a new crop of eggs, and die.

The La Crosse, Wisconsin branch of the National Weather Service (NWS) reports that the mayflies caused a three-vehicle car crash as they descended over the town. The flies caused a bow echo on the NWS radar, which normally occurs during heavy rains, and proceeded to make a Wisconsin road slick, causing a driver to lose control of her car. Two people were injured in the crash, and one was treated at a local hospital. ...

Hi Christropher, loved the many ways that nature proves there is a God that you gave us to ponder. I catch my self doing this a lot. When I sit out on the patio and watch the blue birds building their nest in the box we put in our yard. Sometimes the chickadees get it first and I can tell who has it by the kind of nest they have built. Always each one builds their nest the same and even one kind of bird that built in there always puts a piece of snake skin on the finished nest. I had read this about the Flycatcher and so it was for the one building in my box. I checked it out myself.Amazing that atheist can't look in their own back yard and see our awesome God.

I had not heard of this, so I was surprised to see it, though it may have appeared in other years. Since "The Week" is a liberal news source, I think their subscribers will think that this infestation is a result of Global Climate Change. And then they will curse people driving big SUVs, using huge amounts of energy in air conditioned baseball stadiums (no joke, I went to a game last week and the complaint from one guy was...imagine the energy being used to cool this place!).

Yes Dolores, they are big, fat little things, some of the biggest mosquitos I've ever seen!

Hi Dolores, yes...simple, but amazing how they gather around a fire to protect themselves. This made me think about natural instincts from birth, like, say...a spider knowing how to spin a web, a bird building a nest, a beaver building a dam, or a bee building a complicated hive. Made me also think about built in defense mechanisms that the more vulnerable creatures have been given to protect themselves. Like butterflies with patterns on their wings that look like large eyes, a termite that can blow itself up, sacrificing itself to kill invaders, a sea newt that pokes it ribs through its skin to use as spiked weapons, the opossum that plays dead and emits a corpse like smell, and the list goes on an on. Pretty amazing, but all an accident, right?
I went to college in WI, and was also in a foster home there and never saw swarms of bugs. Must be localized.

Thanks for that tip, Lurker.
Will give it a try.
Being a senior household we have plenty of "Eau de Bengay".

Dolores, I like your thoughts there about God's design. you know if you throw a cow pellet in a campfire, it'll keep the bugs away? (sometimes keeps the people away too!)

Well, POT and Dorcas, that is very interesting about the mosquitos and wasps. When there are lots of these insects, they can cause lots of damage. Amazing!! Those much have been some big mosquitos, PursuitofTruth.

Gee whiz, now we get a glimpse of just how devastating those plagues that Moses brought down on the people of Egypt really were. Gnats get really bad certain times of the year in our neck of the woods. My father-in-law had herds of cows on his farm. He had to build a fire for the cows. They would pester the cows, get in their nose and smother them to death. The cows would gather around the fire where the smoke would protect them from the gnats. Is that not amazing?? How even animals are given knowledge of self protection. We can look at nature and see an awesome God that is control of them as well.
