Iowa's rivers and streams are swollen with water right now and they're also teeming with insect life. On this Hort Day edition of Talk of Iowa Host Charity Nebbe talks with ISU Entomology Professor Donald Lewis about aquatic insects, including mayflies, dragonflies, and damselflies. He describes their life cycles and the important role they play in Iowa ecosystems. 

Later on in the program, ISU Extension Horticulture Specialist Richard Jauron answers IPR listener questions.
