A new species of mayfly has recently invaded Columbia. The colorful creatures, measuring several inches in length, have been spotted on various signposts around town. So far, there's been no word from borough officials about their sudden appearance, or if more are predicted to arrive in the near future. June is typically the month when mayflies hatch and begin to appear in town and on the Veterans Memorial Bridge, so these new arrivals are right on schedule.
