Bug/Insects in your helmet while riding?

does this happen to anyone else?

in the past two days i have had a wasp sit on my nose and a mosquito stuck in my ear. the wasp was at a stop light so i could pull off to the side and let him fly away. it was tense 45 seconds. i did not want to get stung in the eye. as for the mosquito i was on 294 in the construction zone and could not pull over. i am sure that people thought i was having a seizure hitting my helmet trying to get it out. i hope that i don't get west nile.

took a bee in the helm at about 25 mph coming to a stop sign. Managed to get helm off, not drop the bike and not get stung.

I had a gnat get in my helmet and stick to my eyeball one time. It did the backstroke there for a while and eventually stopped moving. I couldn't pull over for some reason. Good times.

Damn, a bug in your ear? Is your helmet too big or something?? See if you can order the attachment that goes under your chin for the helmet... I have that on my helmet and I never once got a big in my helmet... I had a bunny rabbit explode on me, but no bugs... lol.
