Not so buggy

A quick update on the bugs: they are gone. I didn't take a picture of them because I assumed they were some type of summer staple, but they flew away the next day.

I told my landlord about them and he guessed it was a termite swarm!

When I heard the phrase termite swarm prior to this, I imagined a huge black cloud of tiny bugs with big jaws blotting out the sun, probably to the tune of Wagner's Ride of the Vylkries. (Trust me, you know this song).

But they just turned out to look like tiny ants with silvery wings. I guess some of them got left behind because today I found one in my car and when I rolled down the window to let it fly away, it was squished by the window and flap part.

Two parts delicate, one part stupid: doesn't sound like that much of a threat to me.
