I have a pink cherry tomato plant that has the tiny black bugs on them that can fly and are eating the leaves. Any ideas what they are? Tha wings tuck under their body so there not visable until they fly.

I have a similar problem and am using this recipe with some success:
1 bulb garlic crushed, 1 onion crushed, 1 Tbl cayenne powder, 1 Tbl liquid dish soap, 1 quart of water. You can spray or just splash/rub it on the leaves by hand. Many find that a mild dish soap solution alone will work. Good luck!
