: HI, I have tiny black bugs all over my petunia leaves, planted in deck containers. What's the best thing to use to get rid of them. They make the leaves real pale and they eat the flowers before they even have a chance to open. I may have a few catapillars eating flowers too.
: TIA, happy summer.

Hi Zelda,
Your bugs are probably aphids. Use an insecticidal soap according to the directions.

Good luck,
Newt
