Answer: Identifying an insect without being able to examine it is virtually impossible. There are so many with similar appearance. But, all is not lost. Capture several of the critters in a sealable plastic bag and take them to your local Cooperative Extension office, Master Gardener Clinic, or well-staffed nursery. Helpful folks can identify the insects for you and suggest some control measures.
Best wishes with your garden!
