Midges invade downtown Cleveland

Midges have returned to downtown Cleveland for the summer. 

Midges are small, two-winged fly/mosquito like bugs that won't bite, but they do hang out in annoying large groups.

The bugs hit the city big time back in 2007, when they swarmed an Indians, Yankees game helping the Indians win.

Don't worry, they don't live long. The pesky bugs live for about a week then birds in Northeast Ohio will be getting an all you can eat buffet.
