Pests on Bee Balm

roandco(z5ONT)July 18, 2008

Hi All,

My pink bee balm hasn't been flowering that well and I noticed alot of black specks on the flower buds but no leaf damage at all. Today I saw a few tiny, fairly fast moving larvae on the flower heads so I suspect the specks are litter. I also caught a wasp capturing one of the larvae...see picture.

Can anyone tell me what the larvae are? No other plants around the bee balm have these specks and are doing fine.
