The funnel formation is not a behavior, its a hereditary (species or genera specific) physical reaction to being to small to combat the force of the
This is not completely unheard of, its just not noticed as often because conditions have to be just right for swarms like these to form.
Lots of stagnant water
Excessively warm temps.
With all of the extra stagnant water due to flooding the environments are ripe for insect production. With enough water in large enough areas these
huge swarms form. There only noticeable if their populations are high enough.
Oh, yea, lost my train of thought, the tunnels are the same effect that produces the dust devil or the human sized leaf tornado (u kno, the ones
formed on windy fall afternoons that throw the leaves back onto the lawn).
Anyway, its not weird for these to do this, its not unexpected, its definitely not an effect of haarp, its just incredibly small, incredibly weak, and
extremely lightweight bug that's being blown around in the wind.
Anyone know if the species creating this has functional wings or if it just floats around, is it even confirmed to be a bug. I've seen a trees worth
of tiny flower petals floating down the street in a similar fashion.
