Turn off the lights?

Can you tack(y) up some screen material on the outside of the window frame? The bugs will bounce off the screen so you won't hear them.

what's on the other side of the windows? large shrubs? other plants?

Maybe they're drawn en masse to that area becuase of the plants, and then drawn to the windows because of the lights?

treat the shrubs?

if there isn't anything substantial growing near the windows, I'm at a complete loss with what you can do.....

I live in the woods. I have this issue. If you want your windows open and curtains drawn, Custom fit solar shades will keep them from getting in and hitting the window....
