6779. These have been showing up outside and inside the house in Spring/Summer for the past 5 years. They are lethargic. Not many of them (maybe 10 a year). I scanned your images but none seemed quite the same. Can you please tell me what they are and how to get rid of them? Thank you for your help! Port Moody, BC. Canada
