SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The insects bugging some Spokane residents this fall are smoky-winged ash aphids.

Master Gardener horticulture coordinator Tim Kohlauff tells KHQ (https://bit.ly/1vtAYbD ) the gnats swarm this time of year because they’re looking to mate.

He says they’ll land on an ash tree, which he describes as a big singles bar for bugs. They’ll lay eggs in the bark.

Kohlauff says the insects will bug off when it turns cold.
