shot holes in leaves, tiny winged insect

kozureokamiMay 21, 2006

Hi, I'm fairly new to gardening, so please bear with me. I transplanted healthy tomato plants about ten days ago. I woke up yesterday and found the leaves, particularly those near the bottom, shot with tiny holes. I immediately thought of flea beetles, but all I can find are *very* tiny winged insects with bodies smaller than that of a deer tick. They are really tiny. I can't even be certain that this is what has caused the damage--I'm just assuming so because after watching for two days, these are the only insects I see. Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

I think that I've seen the same on one of my plants. I think that they came from some creeping vine that we have in the yard.

I'll await an expert's answer.
