Please help identify this pest...

I'm not sure what this is. They're absolutely covering some of my plants (I think they're asters), and my plants are dying. I've never had a problem with them before, but there's so many of them. If you could tell me what they are and how to get rid of them I would appreciate it so much. Thank you!

They appear to be lacebugs. (A larger image would make me confident of that.) If so, direct hits of insecticidal soap will work. Most likely you'll have to repeat as needed, and as directed on the label.

Jean, I looked up some photos online, and that's exactly what they are. Thanks so much for your help. I have SO many of them it's driving me crazy. I'll make sure to spray them well in the morning. Thanks again!
