Has anyone else been overrun by pollen beetles in the last week or so?

They are everywhere. On flowers, in the house, in your hair.......

    Hi PF. I am overrun with them too. I just let them get on with life.

    Everywhere here, too.
    Did they tear it out with talons of steel
    And give you a shot, so that you wouldn't feel?
    And washed it away as if it wasn't real?

    In my yellow day lily they fill up the flower.
    I have just ordered a cream rose not a yellow one because I thought they were attracted to yellow and I see they are on a cream rose!
