piles of tiny insects in my driveway
What are these things???
There are several piles of millions of tiny moving insects in several places in my driveway. They are a dark grayish, brownish color. They are oblong and have visible antennae. At first, I thought they were piles of dirt.until I noticed they were moving. I can’t find anything on the Web. Help! Thanks,
Charlie

Hi Charlie,
Springtails in the order Collembola, are minute insects often found in large numbers. These are probably Snow Fleas, Achorutes nivicola, a type of Springtail that is found in the winter, often on top of the snow on warm sunny days.
