Description

Found tons of dead water boatmen on top of dark cars in the parking lot. Little or none on light-colored cars. They were literally dropping from the sky around us hitting the cars then roasting on the hot surface.

Apparently water boatmen migrate then drop to water. I'm guessing they're mistaking the dark cars for pools of water?

Description from Wikipedia

Hemiptera /hɛˈmɪptərə/ is an order of insects most often known as the true bugs (cf. bug), comprising around 50,000–80,000 species of cicadas, aphids, planthoppers, leafhoppers, shield bugs, and others. They range in size from 1 mm (0.04 in) to around 15 cm (6 in), and share a common arrangement of sucking mouthparts. Sometimes, the name true bugs is applied more narrowly still to insects of the suborder Heteroptera only.
