I'm happy to learn they are basically harmless and that you can't suffer an infestation from them because, apparently, they won't breed in the house.

There is a bumper-crop of them this year. They are annoying and kind of dopey more than anything. The swarm was a bit frightening to see last night.

That many of one kind of bug just didn't seem right to me!!
