I can't tell for sure what the insects are without looking at them but the most common pest in your part of the country are flea beetles. Flea beetles are small, black, hard-bodied insects that hop or fly quickly when disturbed. Flea beetles produce small feeding streaks or "window pane" scarring on the leaves. This damage rarely hurts the plants and you can simply hose the beetles off with a strong stream of water from the hose.
