Hi,
About four days ago I started seeing lots of very tiny bugs crawling on the cushions of my outdoor furniture. I have been trying to brush them away, but they keep reappearing. I have also seen a bug that looks to be a larger/grown version of the tiny bug.
Is the small bug and large big the same thing? Please help me identify this bug. Thank you!

Dear Eric,
Your images of the smaller insect are quite blurry and there is not enough detail to be certain, but they might be Aphids.  They are not the same as the larger insect which is a Snowy Tree Cricket or Thermometer Cricket, a species that can be used to tell the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit by counting the chirps it emits and plugging the number into a simple formula.
