Help! Good bug or bad bug

Post  LeeAnne12 on 4/30/2012, 11:50 am

I'm not sure whether these are good or bad bugs. They have the same shape as a lace wing, but they are black and at the most an eighth of an inch long...too small to take a picture, I think. I am seeing them on my tomatoes and peppers. They are on the leaves, top and underneath. I do have aphids on my bell peppers and I've just been smushing them at this point. If I need to take a pic, I can try once the wind calms down, but the wing shape is just like a lacewing.

Thanks for your help in identifying this!

No, it looks more like this, but tiny and black. The wings don't lay flat, but stick up in the air like the lacewing. They are thinner where they meet the body though.
