why my Crimson Passion dwarf sour cherries never bloom

I am getting a bloom failure on my crimson passion cultivar. I am seeing it on all plants (over 1000) at both locations where I have them. I am seeing that others growers are having the same problem. I watched them carefully this spring, and noticed that the buds that should have flowers expanded and then died. only foliage appeared on terminal buds. It gives the cultivar kind of a naked look. some of the buds would have a few stamens sticking out of them. I am thinking this is some kind of mite damage or something. The Carmine Jewel cultivar seems to be immune to this and is always loaded with flowers, as are the other two cultivars that I have. Is there some known pest or disease that could be responsible for this?

Tiny black bugs (1-2mm) at the base of a tree

Hi, I discovered a mass of tiny black bugs at the base of a tree in my backyard in northeastern Ohio. It has been a wet, cool spring. The tree is overall healthy and these bugs weren’t there 1-2 weeks ago. Their bodies are matte, not shiny, and they are so small I can’t tell much about them. They’re maybe 1/4 to 1/2 the size of a grain of rice. Are they a danger to my tree(s)? I tried to take a picture of one by itself, the end of the piece of straw is pointing to it.
