Anyone know what the medium sized yellow flying bugs that has infested Longwood and Brookline? It's like they are attacking.
Stephanie E adds:
They're everywhere! One of them tried flying up my nose today (in Cambridge).

Yesterday evening in the Kendall Square area I started noticing these little bastards falling off my cap onto my shirt, even on my hands. I took my cap off and shook it good, didn't see anymore. Counted at least 8-10 of these little guys. Don't know where they came from [fell off a tree?]. They were similar to fruit flies. This is a first for me. Must have something to do with the warm, wet, humid weather.
Come on, somebody's gotta have a cam with macro capability...
