Basically seems to be the bright vivid neon leaning colors that they zero in on the most.

Yellow and orange definitely their favorites but I saw a guy with a neon green top today who was covered in them too.

White seems to be fairly safe from my experience so far.

Ladybugs will take care of them. Unfortunately I think that nurseries are not selling them at this time of the year. Someone correct me if I'm wrong... :smt045

I'm just glad that they're actually bugs flyin around...

I thought I was having an acid flashback from 86 when I went wild on the stuff while waiting for the ferry at Swartz Bay to go to Expo ..... We got there at midnight ... cops came ... Yada Yada .,.
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me..

Here's the trick.

Invest (finally I did) in a flyswatter.

Now they're gone. Nothing to swat!
