White aphids swarming

        Woke up to hundreds of white aphids on the inside of all my open windows, anyone know why?

    Whereabouts do you live ... are you in a rural area where farmers are harvesting?

  • Not particularly no. There’s a bit of hay making but not atm due to the wet weather but really we live on the edge of the moors.

    That sounds lovely ... we're near to marshes :)

    If they've not been displaced from a crop being harvested, maybe there's been a recent hatching of something and your windows are strangely attractive to them ... 

    Is it possible for a photo of some of them ... clear enough for @wild edges or someone to attempt an ID?

    Are you sure they are aphids?
  • Found a couple that since come in.

    I’ll tag @wild edges … his eyes are younger than mine … and he knows more about insects 😃
