They are everywhere pretty much and I don't know what they are. Anybody?

RE: What is this?

The longish round guys with many legs are millipedes.

They're cleaning up the carcass of the critter that previously used the large wings.

RE: What is this?

I think those winglike things are maple tree seeds. But they may be cleaning up my sunflowers! Should I worry about them or are they ok to have in the garden?

RE: What is this?

OK< I'll go for maple seed things.

Are they a problem?
Well, do you want help from cleaner-uppers of dead stuff or not?

RE: What is this?

Millipedes dine on decaying vegetative waste while centipedes dine on other insects. The seed cases from a Maple would be a choice morsel for millipedes to munch on.
