Hackberry psyllids

Have you seen the small insects that have been gathering on windows, cars, sides of buildings around Central Texas?  I've been getting calls and emails about what these "gnat-like" critters are.  Well, they are not gnats but hackberry psyllids.  We typically get them each fall when the weather grows cooler and they try to move indoors where it is nice and cozy.

They are more of a nuisance than anything else and I would recommend that you work on excluding them from the house.  For tips on exclusion, see this post.

You can also find more information on other critters that may try to move indoors at Mike Merchant's blog.
