    Default Insects : not sure what they are

    Have you all notice these small bugs , like grey in color flying around ?
    I never noticed them until this fall. All over my windshield, they get on you as well..
    they do not bite as I have put a couple on the palm of my hand..

    Annoying little things.

    Gnats... Maybe.



    They've always been all over. Change your diet. Your excretions determine how much they are attracted to you.

    I know what your referring to as they're all over my cars and patio area. They're all dead as well which is strange.

    Possibly either termites or ants. When winter ends and the spring-like weather first comes, flying termites and ants will break out of their winter nests and search for food and new locations to inhabit. With the spring-like weather we've been having, it's not uncommon for it to trick these animals into thinking it's time to come out. It's called swarming and that's why you see them everywhere. Literally hundreds and up into the thousands can come out of a single area. I did pest control (termite work) for 4 years in the late 90's is how I know of this. Later, QD.

    I know what insects you mean. I have them all over hear as well. They are definitely not gnats, termites, or ants. I'm familiar with how all of those look. These look more like small moths.

    If they are little and round they are male lady bugs I think. Those little bastards are annoying.
