male mosquito or crane fly


Dear Bugman,
In the last couple of weeks my yard has been infested with either the male mosquito or crane fly. Not sure which, but I'm mean hundreds at any given time. Riding the mower is not fun. They seem to be harmless, unless they are wrecking my lawn?? In other summers I'd always see the odd one or two, but now there are swarms. Any idea why?

Thx
Janet

Cuz they don't bite silly Like lots of men they just look big and hairy and scary, but when it comes time for action its their wives doing all the squawking

With their gangly legs and huge wings, these guys are about the size of a monarch butterfly, but not nearly as pretty.
