These little buggers are one of the joys of being so close to Lake Erie (about two blocks)...lol! The closer to the lake you get, the more you have. They’re known as midgies, mayflies, sand flies, lake flies, muffleheads. Whatever you call them, they are annoying! They kind of look like mosquitoes and gather in the grass, flowers and shrubs. Walk by and thouands will swarm you, but thankfully, they don’t bite. At night you can hear the sky buzzing and sometimes see black clouds of them. They say that having so many is a sign that the lake is healthy, but getting any yard work done is impossible. When they are gone, it will be time for the Canadian soldiers, but that is another post!
Please enjoy a few pictures from my yard.
I hope your week is off to a great start.
Until next time. Lauren
