This is the best I could manage. The paper it's on is a normal notepad so the lines are 7mm apart which gives a vague size guide.

That's not what I'm getting. Ours are more like Green Flies.

That looks more like a locust, which incidently are plaguing large areas of inland QLD right now

Can't remember them being as bad in previous years but then it's been a bad year so far for mozzies etc so maybe it's the same for these little sods.
this is funny, I noticed loads of these little green flies last night whilst I was washing up... they were attracted to the kitchen light and kept banging into the window.

I've got no idea what they are... they look weird though.

After capturing it, did you interrogate it ?

"what exactly are you, green fly?"

We've had to bite the bullet and close all windows and doors and put the air con on dehumidify so we don't cook. It's not nice but preferable to being infested by the little buggers.

They are green on the inside too!! Squashed a load of 'em the other night. Thought it was because our grass had got so long and was just cut the other day but obviously not!
