Dang Chief, ain't had them that bad here yet. We drove here from OR arriving 12/29/17. I can't recall exactly when in Jan/Feb but they were all over the inside of our windows. My first chore of the day was to shop vac them.

We had plumbers, HVAC folks and electricians working in the house (we drove into a nightmare) and they initially told us of the issue and that the little SOBs bite, which I have since experienced firsthand. :) Since replacing windows and siding the house, less get in but I can't work outside when they're way their flying around in the gazillions.

I find a nice shady place when they're flying around and have a beer or two until it cools down some and they're not such a nuisance.

This year seemed a bit worse than last year. From my understanding, warm days after the first frost brings them out. Once it cools down they fade away. It's been a couple weeks or so and I'm still sweeping them up here and there.

BTW, I apologize for attaching this beetle thing to this thread.
