We have a tree covered with white flying bugs! I went to cut limbs today and it was like snow coming down! Hundreds of it these flying about! If you didn’t know my truck was white you would like it was with these bugs! Thanks for you time!

    Did you find them on a sycamore by chance? The sycamore lace bug (Corythucha ciliata) ranges through much of the eastern US, and your little guys are a dead ringer for them!
