Building color/materials to reduce Mayfly/Fishflies

Hey guys,

So i'm looking into homes on Lake Erie and it seems like some areas have ALOT of fishflies...

When redoing the home are there any materials/colors that they will less likely want to stick to?

Any good methods to keep them away?

Good luck,
I was in Vermillion last night and the mayfly harvest was in full bloom.They were everywhere, sides of buildings, cars, etc. They showed on the news this morning the shopkeepers using leaf blowers to clean their sidewalks of all the dead ones. Looked like they were an inch thick. Whenever you live near the lake, expect a lot of spiderwebs, instantly. And they catch a lot of bugs. One of the things that come with lake living.
