What are these??

For the past 2 weeks, our house has been bombarded with these flying things. They haven't bitten us, but they are definitely not afraid of people. The front of our house has thousands of them. We have started using the back exit to come and go. We can't identify them, therefore we don't know how to treat it. An "expert" thought they were tiger bee flies, but the wings are different.

Emerald sweet cherry

3 week ago, I had lots of bright red cherries on all of my 4 trees. Then the crows came and started eating them about two weeks later and I went out to throw netting over the trees and all the cherries were covered with a gray mold and most were dried up. How do I prevent this from happening next year?

Concern about a Sugar Maple

My wife noticed that there seems to be little shavings from our huge maple that are falling from the air. They look like they could be wood although they are very flaky and soft. We have lived at this home for 20 years and this is the first that we have seen anything like this. The tree looks to be the picture of health, but we are concerned that it may be at risk now in some way. I have included a picture of the shavings that I caught over the last two days in a white porcelain bowl. I would appreciate any insight or instruction that you might be able to give me. Thanks so much, Ken Kunkel

PS I have also added a picture of the tree itself and a few of the leaves that have fallen. They might help to identify the tree.
