    The tiny winged creatures had set upon the city during the last weekend, swarming in the streets and apparently leaving some of the locals unnerved by their presence.

    It seems that the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk has recently witnessed a veritable plague of small insects, with videos of the calamity emerging online.

    According to local media reports, the insects descended upon the city during the last weekend, leaving quite a few eyewitnesses rather unsettled as the tiny greenish winged creatures swarmed in the streets, covering the pavement with their bodies and sometimes even managing to find their way into buildings and buses.

    Some social media users suggested that the winged "invaders" were small sap-sucking insects known as aphids, with some described the sight of these creatures as "creepy".
