As large as they are, these insects are incapable of inflicting any harm; in fact the largest ones, the giant stoneflies, have no mouthparts as adults. They are an important part of stream and river fauna, providing food for fish and birds like the Dipper, and their absence is often a good indicator that a stream is being polluted.
