Caddisflies
Dear bugman,,
I have what appears to caddisflies all over my house. I have a large woods(over 100 acres) behind my house there is a stream 100 feets from my house and a pond about 100 yards from my house. There are thousands covering my house. Do you have any idea what to do with them. Unfortunately, Iam not a fly fisherman.
Thanks,
John

Hi John,
These are not Caddisflies, but Stoneflies, Order Plecoptera. We are baffled why, having a stream and a pond, you don’t fish. Your Stoneflies are seasonal and some years there are population explosions. Soon enough, they will be gone for another year.
