Whoa! Slow down. Before you start murdering bugs, lets try to find out what they are.

Where in the world is your patio full of bugs located? How big are they? Have you noticed any damage to your plants?

Hi gardennewbie, Welcome!

I'm not sure but it reminds me of some sort of Lacewing insect which I think are good ones to have in the garden because they eat bad insects like aphids.
