You might possibly be seeing leafhoppers. I would suggest you consult with your local county extension to obtain a more specific identification, and based on knowing that decide if you need to do anything about them. (Many insects do not harm lawns at all.) If a chemical control is needed they will have the most up to date information on what to use and how/when is best to use it for maximum results.
