For the first time in the long and storied history of Great American Ball Park, the pressbox windows were closed tonight during the game due to a bug invasion…

Here’s a photo of one of the culprits…



You could see these nasty bugs EVERYWHERE on the TV last night. So gross!!! What the heck are they?!?!

That’s a type of mayfly (Possibly Hexagenia?). They tend to swarm at lights which is probably why they were attracted to the stadium. They have a pretty short lifespan as adults- the larvae are aquatic.
