Black bugs in dahlias.

I have lots of tiny black bugs in my dahlias. These little buggers are numerous, and they BITE. It makes cutting my dahlias, and handling them very uncomfortable.
Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggested solutions would be appreciated. Thank you.

I'm rather late in an attempt to give you a response to your question. I have black bugs in my dahlias that are a real nuisance. They are European Earwigs. This might be what you are seeing. Do a search to see if your bugs are like those that I have. Though it's late now, there are ways to get rid of this type of earwig.
