Has anyone seen this before?

I have attached a picture of what might be a bug but I am not sure. It has about ten what look like legs and is all white. I am in central New Jersey and we started seeing these in late Spring. They seem to float rather than fly and when they land their legs move about. They are in differing sizes with the one in the photo I took is about a 1/2 inch.

I had these on my deck several years ago and they returned the next 3 years also. I contacted the County Extension Office and they looked at this bug and it is a form of aphid. If you watch it very carefully it will move very slowly. It fell from my maple tree unto the deck. What a mess. There was nothing I could do about it and about the end of July the cycle was over so we could again use the deck. By the way the tree was huge and full of them.
