Has there been an explosion in the population of European Starlings this year? (If not, then every single one of these horrible avians is hanging out in the trees around my apartment.)

Henrico County Virginia

I have not heard of an abnormal increase in the amount of starlings this year. They must have found a good spot to roost near your apartment.

You could try calling the VA Dept. of Game and Inland Fishery Wildlife Conflict to see if they have any strategies for helping the birds find another roosting location: https://www.dgif.virginia.gov/wildlife/nuisance/
