We have these every year on the side of the house. They seem to like the shade. They don’t appear to an issue. There’s just alot of them. I haven’t been able to ID them.

Hi Mike,
You must live near a source of fresh water.  This is a Mayfly and they have aquatic larvae.  When it is time for metamorphosis to the winged adult, they often emerge in large numbers.  Mayflies to not eat as adults, and generally live a few days at most, long enough to mate and reproduce.
