It's gotten a bit buggy recently in central Wisconsin.

People are noticing swarms of mayflies in the area, but ecologists say that's not a bad thing...

..."The river is cleaner now than it was in the 60s and 70s and these mayflies are little biological indicators that the water quality is getting much better," said Jeff Dimick, an aquatic ecologist at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point.
