Insect Locator Map - Pond Edge

In or around streams, ponds, lakes: Look for mayflies, dragonflies, damselflies, stoneflies, caddisflies, aquatic beetles, true bugs, and flies.

A pond's edge is a good place to use an aquatic net and scrape the bottom to find beetles and bugs. Dragonflies and damselflies commonly fly above the water. Mayfly adults come out at night and can be attracted to light. You will also find many aquatic larvae, especially mayfly and damselfly larvae. These can be put in a container and reared out until adulthood. The mud around the edge is also a good place to look.
