Explanation from noted local entomologist at...
My neighborhood has them too. My husband said they are mosquitoes but I don't think that is correct.
They seem to be "wooly aphids" ... Check out this discussion in the forum, also has pictures:
Not aphids, but tiny spiders... rather pretty to watch them float in the sunshine:
"October is a month when the world is full of young spiders leaving home. Wisps of silken thread fill the air. Sunlight glints off gossamer parachutes following the whims of the wind. Young spiders break their ties with home by flying away on wings they build themselves."
They were in my yard too, I don't think they were apiders there were no webs of any kind, all gone with the wind today!
