Tiny black flying bugs

Hey, I recently was sitting outside on a warm day and was getting swarmed with gnat which I thought but they weren't. I got ate alive by these tiny bugs. They were same size of a gnat, they were black in color with a white spot on them. They bit and the bite looks like a mosquito bit and resembles one as well. I didnt feel them biting me. I was in upper northern Illinois closer to Wisconsin in farming country. What could these be? I do not have a picture.

I impulse ordered some asparagus roots for fall planting, and they just arrived. We've had hard frosts, days in the 30's, snow on the ground all week, and now freezing rain. I'm not planting in this weather! Can I wrap the roots in plastic and put them in the freezer to plant in March? Or preserve them some other way?

Spreader-Stickers used with Pesticides

What is the difference between these two spreader-stickers, Audible 90 and LI 700? When should one be used over the other? Can each be used with the pesticide Bifenthrin when spraying tree trunks/bark?
