What are these swarming flying Bugs?

6-8-2012 Hello, I tried sending a video earlier but it may not have went properly,I also did it wrong on uploading the Video.
Eary this morning, I was outdoors straiting up part of the yard. I also had sprayed an eco friendly bug spray. Around noon there were many flying bugs, and it had gotten so bad I had to go indoors. I did go get my camera and went back outdoors to film these certain type of swarming flying bugs. they look more like a beetle, but bigger. I had to go back in because they kept getting into my hair. I decided to re-film the flying bugs from my window. the first film was over you MG limit, which did show them very well. I'm sending the 2nd film. What is this bug. It is now 3:45 pm, and they are starting to fade away, but only a few still flying. Also while I was out taking single picture of this bug, I had discovered a strange new bug. It walked sidways, and about a inch long, what is it, and the flying bugs? thank you, Mrs. Connie Grimes, Royalton IL.

The left picture is a japanese beatle, the right is some type of wheelbug which can give a rather painful bite if handled.
