In den Käffern im Mississipi-Delta werden ganze Dörfer von Eintagsfliegen eingedeckt. Passiert so wohl jedes Jahr. Ich würde mich da gerne reinstellen (mit so 'ner Steampunk-Pilotenbrille oder Ghostbusters-Anzug oder sowas) und ganz laut „Lord of the Flies“ rufen.

A hatch starting at about 8:45 p.m. CT Sunday was so prolific that it created a bow echo on radar, similar to one that would be made in a significant rainstorm, according to the La Crosse, Wis., office of the National Weather Service. A weather service employee captured some images of the short-lived insects covering nearly everything in their path. […]

The road about 50 miles southeast of Minneapolis had become slick from the mayflies Sunday evening, causing at least one of the drivers involved in the crash to lose control of her vehicle. Visibility was limited at the time of the crash because to the massive cloud of mayflies in the air, police said.
