I'm not sure either. I never experienced this.

Maybe try hosing off the plant each morning. Shrug!

Sounds like aphids. Are you able to find pics of aphids that look like your bugs? If so, putting a baby ladybug on your plant should take care of it, if you can find one.

yeah I think they are aphids I found a pic of them on the net. I will try to find a lady bug. Been just spraying it off every day it seems to have helped. Thanks for the help

The thread "Dishwashing soap for aphids" in Soapy Water To Defeat Aphids

Try this on the plants if they are aphids.
