Little Black Bugs

clairtx(z8 TX)November 21, 2012

I have little black bugs all over my patio at night. They come through the screen into the house so we can't keep that door open at night. Does anyone know what they might be and what to use on them?

right now I am unable to take pics, but they are not flies. more like beetles, but very small. small enough to come through the screen.

I think those are flea beetles. They hop around and it would that they love eating alyssums
