I noticed allot of little black bugs on my Okra leaves, very small bugs, no bigger then ghost ants (tiny ants). Are these cucumber beetles? Any way to control them organically?
Probably aphids. Aphids come in many different varieties and colors, so don't be fooled by them. Aphids suck out juices of plants and and introduce several different diseases. And, to make matters worse, if ants find them, they will farm raise them on your plants and keep them where they are. The ants eat the nectar the aphids produce, and the aphids get food from the ants. I would recommend planting garlic around your plants that have aphids. The garlic may keep the ants away.
