The video shows a community using steel pots to scoop mayflies with and collect them into a pulpy substance that is shaped into the familiar circular forms of burger patties…and the fried.

Surprisingly, very little legitimate information is available about this practice but what we have managed to establish is that the people in the video are collecting a mayflies and that this is done in Lake Victoria, east Africa. We leave it up to you, our readers, to enlighten us and each other about when this is done and how the patties taste!

According to a post on Fox News (not our favourite source either), the patties from these flies can have as much seven times the protein content in traditional beef burgers!

Watch the video below to see how the flies are harvested.
