Post #9608822

These little flying critters have arrived in swarms over the past week... they are on everything... and seem to be devouring my green beans, basil, lettuce, borage, & cilantro... they're tiny, maybe 1/8-1/16 of an inch & speedy as heck. They take off upon approach, or with the slightest disturbance... ideas as to what they are, if they'll cause major damage to my garden... & any preventative measures? Thanks!!

These are plant bugs in the family Miridae; likely tarnished plant bugs, a serious pest species - http://local.garden.org/Tarnished_Plant_Bug_Oregon_OH-r1216626-Oregon_OH.html
