Swarm Sunday – 7/24/11 – 7/30/11

Welcome to the last Sunday in July!  It’s looking like this year is not going to have as many swarms as last year, though I do wonder if people are scared off by how long my report form looks.  Still, I got several new swarm reports this week.  Swarms occurred in the following locations, all in the US:

Florissant, MO
St. Louis, MO
Ottawa Lake, MI
La Coste, TX
Rock Port, MO
Lebanon, OH
Boulder, CO
Festus, MO
Marco Island, FL
Sugar Grove, IL
Ft. Meyers Beach, FL
Lakeville, MA
Sanibel Island, FL
Valparaiso, IN

Looks like Florida and the Midwest still have the most reports, but Colorado has had an awful lot of activity this summer, especially along about a 30 mile corridor along either side of I-25, right down the middle of the state.  Fun!


Have you seen a dragonfly swarm?

I am tracking swarms so I can learn more about this interesting behavior.  If you see one, I’d love to hear from you!  Please visit my Report a Dragonfly Swarm page to fill out the official report form.  It only takes a few minutes!
