      An aphid I think. The lime aphid Eucallipterus tiliae has similar blotches on its wings, but that's not a definite ID just a suggestion. See -

          Hard to say without knowing where they'ce come from. If, for example, they are lime aphids then presumably they're come in from outside (are there lime trees nearby?). If it's another species then it's anyone's guess as to where they're from. Do you have any indoor plants?

              I'm pretty sure they're aphids. If you could get a good picture of a healthy specimen it might be possible to give an ID but there's no guarantee. Have you any vegetation growing up the side of the house?

                  Ah, the insects that are in the second post from the top are flies and are not aphids like the one in your first post.  Can't help you with those, sorry. They don't look particularly distinctive so you may not get an ID.
