tiny jumping bugs everywhere!
I am hoping someone knows what these critters are! We are just 20 miles east of Salem Or. Every July for about 2 weeks we are infested with these little jumping and flying bugs. We cant sit outside in the evenings as they land and buzz all over your face. They literally hang off the screens and house siding!
We used to think it was because of the many grass seed fields we have nearby, but a friend who lives in Salem said she has them this year too. She had never seen them before. They seem to have about a 2 week life cycle and then they are gone. I have search the internet for info to no avail. Any ideas??
