Green flying bug with translucent wings

nutsaboutflowers(2b/3a)June 23, 2009

These things are flying all over the place in our yard.

They're not particularly ugly, but they'e bothersome, and I'm betting they're up to, or going to be up to, no good.

What are they?

I did a google search and can't find them.

Your green bugs with the transparent wings are lacewings. You can read about them at this site

Thanks Oilpainter ! =:)

I'm so thrilled to find out my lacewings are good for the health of my garden. As I said, I have tons of them. Now I need to educate myself about the eggs and larvae so I don't try to get rid of them.
