Asked October 19, 2021, 11:23 AM EDT
I live in Carlton, Oregon and suddenly a few weeks ago, we had a MAJOR hatch of a bug I was hoping you could help me identify. There are MILLIONS of them, around the foundation of our house, all over the sidewalks and all over the gravel driveway. I thought perhaps it was a stink bug, but they don't match the pictures I am finding online. They are very small, like the size of the ball tip from a ball point pin. From what I have observed, they don't jump or fly at this stage. They only appear during warm afternoons and then disappear during rain and when its colder out.
These are pictures of them on our deck and the last image is best for size reference.
Thank you for your help!
