Answer: There are a number of insects that could match that description. Your best bet would be to hand pick the ones you see and gently scrape off any eggs you find on the undersides of the leaves on a regular basis. You might also try using a neem based spray as a deterrent for the pests. Both of these plants have many insect pests and may be better grown under a light weight "summer" row cover. Finally, to try to reduce the chances for problems next year, be sure to clean up and remove all plant debris from the garden this fall.
