    We had them a few years back. And we live not too far from forest preserve/river. Lets just say, stick to using your AC and don't roll your windows down or roll topless. One lady left her top down in her car, she had to pull over in emergency as they swarmed her car. I remember going to my car that was parked outside and seeing them on my tires. As I drive away, they fling off :rotflmao:

    I have never seen even one up here. I don't think they get this far north in NY but there might be some in southern NY and on Long Island or down there somewhere in NY and of course where you are in NJ and south.

    ThunderbirdJunkie had one bounce off his chest while riding his bike. Lots of them, but one in particular deflected up into ThunderbirdJunkie's helmet. And crawled around. On the freeway. That was the last time that year he rode his motorcycle.

    Sent from ThunderbirdJunkie's mind via satellites

    I remember that. We didn't get too many here, and I don't live that far from you. :shrug:

    Some areas got that bad the last time they were here... we didn't get too many where I live.
    They're harmless though. Just big and loud.

    They were everywhere here last year. Hope they find someplace else to go this year.
