Morning all,

I was watering my Taro plants and caladiums this morning and I noticed a couple of leaves were alittle worst for wear, when I checked under the leaves I discovered, what look like bugs but they appeared to be motionless/not alive. Does anyone have idea what they could be?

They look like aphid nymphs.

Hey Will I disagree, I believe the are Thrips. The body is too elongated for aphids
