INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - "Swarms of insects that look like mutant mosquitoes are invading neighborhoods across the area. Homeowners have been calling mosquito control and Purdue University's extension service asking about the bugs. They are called Crane flies and if you've got them, you can't miss them. "
Yes, it is that bad! Swarms, literally thousands of these Crane flies all across the yard. With each step I take masses of these large mosquito looking bugs fly up from the grass. Every time I open the door to let the dog out they try to get inside. It is terrible! I had no idea what these were or why there were so many of them. I was very glad to read this in the news today, now I know what has invaded Robin's Nesting Place.
Since I'm posting about bugs, I thought I'd share this picture of the moth too.
