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.

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

Try this on the plants if they are aphids.
