little black flying bugs
I live in Phoenix, and noticed these little black winged bug/gnat like things on my plant and on the plant there seems to be little black dots around some of the stems. I am a novice and this is the first thing I ever planted. I heard I can use a diluted mix of soap with water and spray it on the plant, but I have no idea the ratio. I also saw a spider like clear bug on the bottom leaf and took the hose and gently gave the plant a gentle spray all over. Does anyone know what I can use to get rid of these bugs? I am just starting to get little tomatoes coming in. Should I get a pot of marigolds to put near the plants?
