Mayflies Invade The Midwest
A massive swarm of insects wreaked havoc on the Mississippi river valley, and it wasn't pretty. The swarm of mating Mayflies was actually so thick that it was caught on weather radar, and caused a minor traffic accident. It all started when billions of Mayflies emerged from the Mississippi river to mate. The swarm stretched well over 100 miles -- from Red Wing, Minnesota to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.
