I live about a half mile from a super large lake and for about a week in May we get massive amounts of lake flies that tend to swarm into huge black clouds. I was riding home at dusk one night on a hot day and had my visor open about an inch at the bottom on my full face helmet. I drove through one of those swarms and got a face full. I swallowed a couple. Nearly flew into the ditch and had to pull over to empty out my helmet. I know how you feel!
There were a few days in February when it was around 60-something degrees during the day, but it was still to cold yet for bugs to come out. I could ride around with sunglasses and my visor open and not worry about getting a nostril/mouth full of 'em.
