There are a number of insects that like to live in lawns. Some are beneficial and some are not. I can't tell from your description just what the insects are, so I can't really recommend a control. I suggest collecting several of the pests, putting them in a sealable plastic bag and taking them to your local cooperative extension office or a well staffed nursery for help in identifying them. Once you know what you're dealing with, you can choose the appropriate control measures as suggested by the staff.
