If you could catch one and get a better picture it would be a big help. These are a little blurry.

Hi Chuck,

They are super tiny. I enlarged the photo 5 times to see the little white dots. that's the reason why the photo is blurry. I use Q-tip caught one this morning and took a few photos under microscope. Basically it's became a little yellow dot out of water and lost the mobility. unfortunately, I forgot to save the photos to laptop. Those little bug were washed away after I dumped some water to the pipe after rain. I will try to catch one next time.
