hmm, so they're bad bugs.
I found a ladybug eating the 'grey aphids' on my bak choi, and these black bugs were nothing like those aphids. I haven't seen them do any damage other than just sitting on the underside of the leaves, so wasn't sure if they were bad or good.

take the safe approach this weekend and start removing them.

btw, taken those photos with my old samsung galaxy s phone cam.

Hi, the black bugs are eating up my basil. However, so far they seem to have left my tomatoes and Pak Choy alone. Any idea what they are, and tips for how to get rid of them? Thanks!

Looks like another type of aphid. There are lots of different ones.

I often wonder... are they different aphids, or do they just look different from eating different plants. I say this because the aphids on one type of plant always come back as the same color. It could just be that that particular type prefers a specific plant. It still makes me wonder though.

I think it's just a food preference but --- you could try taking a few and putting them on the other plant to see how they turn out. You'd need little tags to make certain they weren't replaced by something else - maybe a paint dot. They'd probably loose any markings as they grow though so you'd have to keep up. Might be a fun experiment.

You could irradiate them and track them that way but god knows what they'd grow into :lol:

I would rather just squish them.

Yes but larger ones would be more satisfying because you could impale them first 8)

Ron, there's at least 250 different species of aphids. I've probably seen at least 50 in this area over the years. They all suck! Literally and figuratively. :)
