Watch: Plague of Mysterious Insects Swarms NYC

This was bound to happen eventually.

New York Post:

A swarm of tiny, gnat-like insects has taken over New York City — with New Yorkers likening the mysterious infestation to a biblical plague.

Videos of the unidentified bugs shared on social media show the minuscule green insects buzzing through the air Thursday evening.

“Clouds of green gnats are taking over NYC,” one Twitter user wrote alongside a clip of the flying critters.

“These swarms of bugs are taking over the city. They are in the subway platform too. The city just keeps getting worse,” another shared.

Some observers joked that the arrival of the insects at the same time as the return of the wildfire smoke hinted at a sinister end for the Big Apple.


It’s over.
