Mayflies Swarm Texas Home

Thousands of the small Mayflies have attached themselves to Howard Ketterer's pickup truck and house in Beaumont. The homeowner isn't too concerned. This happens every year about this time.

Ketterer's property is a magnet to them from the end of may through the beginning of June. Ketterer lives next to a canal and the adult mayflies come from there to spend their last hours on his property. The mayflies eventually die and blow away.

The county agriculture extension service says there is no clear reason why the mayflies congregate only at Ketterer's house, other than it may simply be a convenience.
