Bugs in Fall

Seriously, what’s the deal with all the bugs that seem to fly around in the fall?  Every year around this time I’m forced to give up running or biking outside, because I end up with a mouthful of flies (think Jim Carrey in Me, Myself and Irene).  It always feels like the “real” end of summer to me.  Any science geeks know of an explanation for this?  Or is it just my imagination?

    Here in central Illinois, we are getting swarms of gnat-like insects. They come and go from hour to hour, but at times they are so think it looks like it’s snowing. We’ve never had it this bad, that I can recall. I’m told that it has something to do with our wet spring, and the numbers of their predators (ladybugs?) being down.
