Yellow sugary lerp insects attract ants to their honeydew. An overturned cluster (pic #2 and 3) reveals two of the builders as nymphs. As winged adults they leave home. Note also the usual cluster of tiny eggs.
The two tenants within the overturned lerps appear to actually be the exuvia of the adult insects. I will need to look under a microscope.
