Mayfly

Dear bug lover kindof,
We are sorry to hear about your friend.  This is a harmless Mayfly, a member of the order Ephemeroptera.  Mayflies do not feed as adults, and many only live for a few days, long enough to mate and lay eggs.  Mayflies sometimes appear in tremendous numbers, swarming around street lights and other sources of light near bodies of water that serve as the habitat for the aquatic larvae.
