Answer: The little black bugs may not be harmful at all. Aphids and fungus gnats are common, as are flea beetles. You can hose the aphids off and deter fungus gnats by using a mulch over the soil. As long as the insects are not causing problems, just hosing them off should suffice. A neem oil spray can control flea beetles. Best wishes with your eggplants!
