Sweet Peas have been really abundant this year - but so have the tiny little black beetles that seem to love them! I haven't tried to take photos of them as they are really small - but they look quite inoffensive. I just shake the flowers a little out the back door and get rid of a lot of them. Any ideas what they are?



No but I have them as well, if you put the bunch of flowers down, they shoot off in all directions, I would rather have them than greenfly that make such a sticky mess.

Thanks for the prompt replies. Glad I'm not the only one being plagued by them.
