30fps is too slow to capture these speedy creatures. See here:

Rods were conclusivly proven to be nothing more than insects on film. Due to the figure-8 motion of an insects wings, couples with a shutter speed never higher than 1/60th per second, means a fast flying mosquito of fly, leaves a figure 8 wing trail
