small bodied insect (looks like an ant to me) with what looks like 2 long wings, but when open in flight or by wind is actually 4 wings a long set and a small set (see second photo)
my backyard above ground garden-I have never seen these guys before. I went out in the yard and they weren't there and in less than 10min's I had a huge swarm of them on my plants and planter. The yard guys were mowing so I don't know if this caused them to move or what, but they were so bad I had to bring the kids in.
I'd like to know what these are and if they are a problem for the pest control guy or not. I am pretty sure they will kill my garden, they were all over my mint and strawberries!
