I had a dill plant that was flourishing and then I started to notice tiny little bugs on them. Here's a


I sprayed an organic pesticide with neem oil in it but it was too late. Within days, my plant started sagging and then completely died.

I want to buy a new dill plant but I'm scared the same thing will happen. Does anyone know what these little pests are and what a good method is to combat them?

Can't see what the pests are. Are you certain that you followed the directions for the neem application? It should not be applied on hot, sunny days.

Since you can see these critters, but we really can't...how about googling aphids to see if that's the problem.

I see little green blobs that are likely aphids. You wash wash them off with a jet of water, spray with an insecticidal soap or spray with neem.
