My chives plants covered in the tiniest black bugs? What are they and how do I get rid of them?

I can't tell from your description whether the bugs are aphids or possibly thrips. Either way, the best defense is to hose them off with a strong stream of water. Any chemical you might use could affect the chives and you won't be able to use them in the kitchen.
