as of yesterday, I have many of these on both of my cars and walking along the front of my painted brick house and my neighbors stone house. (I live in Lexington, KY) Thanks for helping me to identify these and possibly assist me in treatment to use if they are destructive.

The Picture Winged Fly, Delphinia picta, is a common species that according to BugGuide: “Breeds in decaying organic matter, such as compost.” Perhaps you have a compost pile or a newly fertilized lawn that is causing the significant numbers of Picture Winged Flies near your home.
