Swarm Sunday (on Tuesday – ouch…): 6/1/14 to 6/7/14

Had company staying at my house all weekend, so this is the first chance I’ve had to get this up. But here it is! Swarms were reported in the following locations over the past week:


Mt. Olive, IL

And here’s the map:

6.1.14 to 6.7.14


Red pins are static swarms, yellow pins are migratory. Click the map to enlarge!

Woo!  That was exciting, wasn’t it?!  Clearly, it was a bit of a slow week for dragonfly swarms.  Here’s hoping next week will be more exciting!


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! Thanks!

One thought on “Swarm Sunday (on Tuesday – ouch…): 6/1/14 to 6/7/14

  1. How often do dragonflies swarm?  Last year I saw my first swarm in the first week of September, a day or so after a big storm. I don’t really know much about them, but since your posting last year I am definitely paying more attention! :)
