Woke up this morning to hundreds (!!!) of these little bugs at our back door. They are teeny tiny, only barely bigger than a flea. Others in the area have noticed they are swarming too, starting yesterday. If it helps any, we are located along the Central Coast of California
These appear to be immature Dirt Colored Seed Bugs in the family Rhyparochromidae, but we are not certain of the species. Sometimes when fields are cleared, there is a migration of insects to gardens. We are not certain of the species, but you can read more on the Dirt Colored Seed Bugs on BugGuide.
