“Yeah, I think we will find another gas station.” Check out this (terrifying) video of mayflies swarming at a gas station in Slidell, Louisiana Monday night, May 28, 2018.
This couple driving through Slidell, Louisiana stopped for gas, but couldn’t because of the millions of mayflies swarming the gas station.
Mayflies live roughly 12 to 24 hours. They are very attracted to light, which may be the reason the bugs flocked to the brightly lit gas station on Military Road.
