Little Black Bugs on Dandelion Flowers?

nutsaboutflowers(2b/3a)May 13, 2012

What the heck?

I've got little black bugs on the flowers of my dandelions? At first I thought they were flea beetles, but they didn't jump off, some of them just sat there, and a few flew off.

Anybody know what they might be?

I don't remember ever seeing them before.

I'm pretty sure I've seen thrips in dandelions before- try that.
