Spring is here, and a lot of people have noticed that with it are coming some unwanted and kind of creepy visitors.
Schowalter says the crane fly is mostly harmless.
"The larvae of the crane flies feed on grass roots," he explained. Like a lot of creepy-crawlers and creepy-flyers, spring time brings them out in the open.
"They've matured now, the weather's warming up, they're emerging as flies and looking for mates and new places to lay eggs," Schowalter said.
But it is a little icky if you have to sweep their dried up body parts out of the corners of your home.
