This insect was part of a swarm that was covering my house one night as I went out to retrieve items from my car.
The insect is primarily yellow in color with black accents, six legs of course, 4 wings each about the length if the body transparent and sectioned off with veins.
It has round black eyes, straight antennae, a soft under belly and two antennae like appendages on the rear of the body.
They were found covering my house at night and swarming a security light. (Church Hill, TN, USA)
Congratulations! You have stoneflies in your area. They are indicators of clean streams and rivers!
Stoneflies tend to mate in swarms. The adults do not feed. They fly at night. The adult stoneflies emerge late spring and summer. The females lay several masses of eggs by flying over water or sometimes crawling up to the water. Depending on the species it takes 1-3 years to mature.
The young of this insect lives in clean clear streams, lakes or rivers. As young nymphs they feed on algae, diatoms, mosses, or other small aquatic insects.
Cool find! Thanks for sharing!
