These insect towers have started to show up on my driveway. When I collapse them depending on the stage of development, I see either white crawling multipeds or flies with long oval wings. I wonder if they're a danger to my plants. I can't find any insects resembling them anywhere. Thanks.

My first thought when I looked at your photo was termites. Have you looked at photos of termites at various stages of life?
I did a quick search, and here is the link for the Fresno County Extension Office:
I suggest you give them a call. Someone might be able to give you advice over the phone, or perhaps you can e-mail your photo to them. They should be familiar with the critters in your area. I've called my local extension office a couple times, and they've always been helpful. Why don't you let us know what you find out? Good luck!
