News

Like a scene from a horror film, hordes of mayflies have infested a city in the eastern European nation of Belarus.

The insects swarmed around streetlights last Saturday) night in what looked like snowflakes in a blizzard.

Amateur video captured the scene with countless thousands of mayflies swirling through the air.

They also carpeted sidewalks in the city.

According to the local media, the mayfly convention happens every year but usually in August.

Summer is when huge numbers of these short-lived insects hatch in ponds and rivers and start mating.
