I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
I can't identify the bug based on that description. I suggest you either take some bugs or a photo of them to your Harris County Extension Office over in the Bear Creek area on the northwest side of town. They should be able to identify them with a sample or photo in hand and then recommend a course of action.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
