I've seen them before but this year they are just everywhere. All over my office windows, house windows, etc. They are EVERYWHERE. The ladybugs love them, but I don't know what they are. They don't bite and are just slightly larger then gnats. Anyone????

If ladybugs are eating them, they're probably aphids.

Yeah, we've got them at our house in McKinney too, they like to congregate on our windows in direct sunlight. No idea what they are.

YES EXACTLY. They are everywhere. I thought they were aphids as well, but after looking those up they don't look to be.

Had lots of them on our windows yesterday too. No idea what they are...not aphids, though.

"Nipple-gall makers" Sorry, that made me giggle. Haven't seen these. I was going to suggest fruit flies (hate them).

Thanks! I didn't know why this was bothering me not knowing what they are. My office is on the 7th floor and they are everywhere on the windows, lol.
