Aphids. One reason folks plant nasturtiums in the garden is that aphids are attracted to them. The theory is the bugs go to the nasturtiums and not vegetable plants. I'd hit em with some insecticide soap.

Well so far im only seeing them on my Nasturtiums cyclops ....That must mean the Nasturtiums are doing their job in the garden Very Happy .....whats weird is they all clump together on the vine and they dont seem to bother the flowers or leaves ....well...as of yet tongue ...so i sprayed them tonight and will hose them on gentle in the morning :drunken: .....having them clump up like that flower sure makes it easier to get rid of them....Laughing
