Crane Flies Are Invading Ohio This Fall And They Look Like Giant Mosquitoes

If you think you’ve spotted a mosquito or two this fall, you’ve likely just encountered some crane flies. Due to last year’s fairly mild and wet winter, Ohio is seeing an abundance of both native and non-native crane flies this fall. Although these unique insects can appear unsightly—especially in the fall after the mosquitos are supposed to be long gone—there’s little to worry about.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
