We woke up today with a bunch of small brown bugs with pincars. Just by back door outside all dead. Can you let me know if they are something we should be concerned about?

Dear Liz,
The presence of Lawn Shrimp,
Arcitalitrus sylvaticus, in the landscaping generally goes unnoticed until we have a good rain that soaks the ground, at which time they often emerge in alarming numbers, dying on the concrete or entering homes to die.  Lawn Shrimp are native to Australia and they are also known as House Hoppers.  See BugGuide for additional information on Lawn Shrimp.
