I get a few of those little black flies or gnats blown up the gap in front of my chin, into my inside visor area of my HJC CL-15 size xl. For the time being I plan to tack in some stretch fabric.

How prevalent a phenomenon is this; I will be seeking a better helmet duh! Please report any similar issiues with what you have.

Please no lectures about "you should buy a ____" because I already know what fits me best.

Motocross helmets have that corse foam stuff in the mouth inlet. You might be able to set something like that up in your helmet.

Buy a helmet curtain. usually made for snowmobiles, they work very very well at keeping wind and debris from entering the helmet through that opening. My brother uses one and swears by it. It's cheaper than getting a much more expensive helmet for sure... and if you end up buying one anyway, they're universal.

i had a bee get caught in my helmet once. it WAS NOT cool.
I've got two bee experiences!

First, I was riding visor open with sunglasses - bee hit my glasses so hard they broke them in half on the nose portion...

And the second bee decided to take a trip down my jacket. It started freaking out and stinging me, so my fiance was wondering what the hell I was doing beating on my shoulder and flailing around while riding...lol

Oh didn't had any bee encounter yet but this helmet curtain will surely help against these cigarettes peoples are throwing out their car windows without looking...

Thanks for the link KS :)
