To make life easier, scroll through the gallery showing where to find both types -- Electro Flies and Newsbots. Naturally, you'll need to shoot up both types to "collect", though the flying swarms of blue bots tend to be trickier to spot in the environment.
There are a total of 21 Electro Flies, and 28 Newsbots. For getting them all, you'll earn the "Major Malfunction", "Total Malfunction", "Insecticide" and "Pest Control" achievements / trophies.

Collectibles Guide | All Swarms & Newsbots Locations
There are two types of collectibles in Bulletstorm -- Electro Fly swarms, and NewsBots. Electro Fly swarms are glowing blue buzzing flies that appear in small swarms.
To collect, you'll need to shoot down every single individual fly. NewsBots are easier, you can kick or shoot these annoying droids to "earn" them. For every Electro Fly / Newsbot you break, you'll earn a small XP reward.
Act 2 - Chapter 1
Electro Flies #1: Early in the chapter, enter the mansion courtyard with the pond. You'll see them on the left as you hop over the root, near the drop kit in the pool.
Newsbot #1: The newsbots are happy little machines that spread news. Kick and destroy them to collect. The first one is scooting around near the canal, right past the swarm file.
Electro Flies #2: Moving past the automated disco dance hall, find the swarm to the left. They're right over the cliff. Grab the collectible before taking the steps down.
Newsbot #2: Ahead, you'll enter a courtyard where creeps armed with explosives will suicide-charge your team. Clear the enemies and smash the bot in the next interior room.
Electro Flies #3: Continuing through the villa, you'll enter a stairwell with electricity wires hanging above. Go down and through the door to the exterior courtyard. The swarm is to the left of the building on the opposite side of the yard.
Newsbot #3: Later, you'll enter a QTE climbing sequence using a vine to reach a new canal bath. On the boardwalk near the raised bridge, you'll find the newsbot.

Newsbot #5: Near the ledge of the seating area, to the right after completing the sniper sequence.
Newsbot #6: After Ishi repairs the bridge, you'll use your leash to access a new area with a drop kit. Go through the narrow path to reach an interior with this bot.
Electro Flies #7: In the harbor area, clear the enemies until an exit door opens at the far end. Find the swarm at the last dock down the line.
Electro Flies #8: Once you reach the interior with a view of a waterfall, you'll be able to find both collectible types - the swarm is just outside near the first waterfall you encounter.
