I assume you will say that the wave is particles, but can we know for sure that the wave consists of particles? Or is it a logic presumption?

That’s the sound bite. A quantum particles has a set amount of energy and is localized when detected. Behavior of particles, not waves. But it doesn’t mean they act like little ping-pong balls.  

The wave does not consist of particles

As this is related to how one describes a particle and StingyJunkie's wavecicle reference I will just post a link to another thread where I had posted the details below.

As Swansont mentioned thinking of particles as little corpuscular balls is the wrong descriptive of a particle. See the link for further details
