That’s a lotta larvae!

Walking past a pile of partially composted horse manure, I noticed the pile was moving. Going in for a closer look, I found a heck of a lot of larvae. I wasn’t too sure what they were so I contacted UC Davis. Lynn Kimsey was super helpful and looked at some photos and then I sent in a sample just to be sure. They turned out to be Crane Flies!
