Love your site!! This bug was on our outside redneck fridge. I have never seen one before or since. Could you please identify?
Thank you

Mayfly

Hi Stephanie,
We really need to know if the redneck fridge is full of beer.  This is a Mayfly, a common group of insects often found near water where the aquatic nymphs or naiads develop.  Adults are often attracted to lights.

Fridge = BEER!@
And, we have a small lake out back.
Right now I’m nursing a Copperhead bite.
Y’all come on down for some Beer and bugs!  LoL
Thanks for the info … y’all are amazing!

Thanks for the invitation Stephanie.  We just might take you up on that offer some day.
