Do Not Be Scare Of The Mayfly

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

You probably have seen Mayfly along Lakes and streams in and around Columbus Ohio
What do you normally do when you see them?
Do you really know much about Mayflies?

Mayfly is a harmless insect that do not bite. They have about a two-year life span, most of which is spent in the sediment at the bottom of water. The larvae swim ashore, and shed their outer layer and sprout wings and a long tail, much like a caterpillar sheds its cocoon and becomes a butterfly. “The mayfly larva metamorphosis into a flying insect, and that stage is an adult insect. That’s what we are seeing now, In their adult stage, they have no mouth and live for about 24 hours.

So let’s not ruin their Short life by smashing or using toxic chemicals!
The pests are a primary food source for all kinds of fish like walleye, perch, bass and even birds eat them as well.

Bugs like it hot: Record heat kicks insects into high gear.

Bugs Like it HOT!!

Bugs Like it HOT!!

By Doyle Rice, USA TODAY

“We’re calling it a breeding bonanza,” says Missy Henriksen of the National Pest Management Association.

“Insects develop more rapidly with higher temperatures,” says entomologist David Denlinger of Ohio State University. He adds that insects did well this past winter given the lack of intense cold.

Through June, the USA was sweating through its warmest year on record, according to the National Climatic Data Center.

Insects such as grasshoppers and crickets can be a nuisance to homeowners, but they are “very devastating” in the agricultural world, Horton says.

As harvesting season nears, the ongoing hot, dry weather could have grasshoppers and similar insects feeding in greater-than-normal numbers on alfalfa, tobacco and some vegetable crops, says Lee Townsend, an entomologist at the University of Kentucky.

“Grasshoppers should be abundant, because the bacteria and fungi that normally provide natural control are not very effective under hot, dry conditions,” Townsend says.

Grasshoppers are already plentiful in New Jersey because of the hot weather, says entomologist George Hamilton of Rutgers University.

And the most annoying summer pest of all, mosquitoes, are enjoying the warmth, despite the record drought.

“Mosquitoes can breed in as little as a quarter- to half-inch of water,” Henriksen says.

Texas and Florida are two spots where mosquitoes are particularly bad, Horton says, because those two states have been both unusually warm and rather wet this year.

Forty-seven human West Nile virus infections, which mosquitoes spread, have been reported this year to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One man in Texas died from the virus.

Drought can drive insects into homes: Ants, for instance, Henriksen says, will come into homes to find water.

“If they’re not finding it outside, they’ll come inside,” she says.

If the warmth stays into the fall, insects will continue to do well until the frost comes, Denlinger predicts.

And beyond that, “if we have another mild winter, we’ll continue to see more pests out there,” Horton says.

Bug Bites Cause Health Scare Aboard Plane at Midway

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Written By Staff Report, from the Orlando Sentinel

A Minnesota woman who caused a health scare aboard a Delta Airlines flight from Detroit — causing the plane to be kept on the tarmac at Midway International Airport Thursday for three hours — says it was all a misunderstanding over bug bites.

Lise Sievers of Red Wing was one of 43 passengers aboard Delta flight 3163 to Midway when it touched down and the captain announced the plane would be briefly quarantined. Men with surgical masks over their faces boarded the plane, and rumors flew as passengers tried to figure out what sort of contagion might be spreading through the cabin.

Sievers said she had been in Uganda, where she is adopting two special needs children and “stayed at a hotel the other night and I think it left friends on my body. My son, who’s four and a half, had pustules on him.”

Before she left Detroit, she told her mother that she had a rash, apparently from bed bugs, and that the boy had pustules. But her mother misunderstood and “conflicting information” was passed on to health officials, who feared Sievers might have monkeypox.

Sievers, 50, who was on the tail end of a 20-plus hour trip that began in Uganda, where she had spent more than three months trying to finalize the adoption of two special needs children, wondered as well, said her son, Roger Sievers.

During a layover in Detroit, she had called her mother in LaPorte, Ind., and mentioned one of the children she was trying to adopt had broken out in pustules-small, pimple-like sores– during her visit, and that the boy had to be taken to the hospital in Uganda. Sievers also mentioned to her mother that she had suffered an unrelated case of itchy bites she believed had been inflicted by bedbugs.

While Sievers’ flight was en route to Midway, her mother confused Sievers’ bug bites and the boy’s pustules, and called her local hospital to ask what she should do to prepare to treat her daughter’s symptoms.

“Any time you mention you’ve been in a tropical country like Uganda and you’ve developed what sounds like an infectious disease, well, they call the CDC (Center for Disease Control) right away,” said Roger Sievers.

Indeed, according to a press release from the CDC issued Thursday, authorities suspected she may have come down with monkey pox, a contagious disease that occurs mostly in western Africa that causes victims to break out in small, crusty bumps. Sievers, however, was as surprised as anyone when her plane was surrounded by ambulances and fire vehicles when it landed at Midway, her son said.

Aboard the plane, health crews took pictures of her rash. Experts determined they were bug bites and let Sievers and her fellow passengers off the plane. Sievers went to a hospital for additional tests-which turned up nothing, her son said-and was resting at a relative’s house in Indiana Thursday night.

Sievers will head back to Uganda in a month to finalize the adoption of the two children who will be the latest of more than 10 children she has adopted over more than 20 years, her son said. The adoption process had dragged on so long, the extra few hours on the tarmac at Midway didn’t seem to faze her, Roger Sievers said. Her fellow passengers were polite, even the ones seated close to her, he said.
