Allium Leaf minors?

Asked September 23, 2017, 11:15 AM EDT

I suspect these black bugs are leaf minors. If this is correct is there any help? The same bugs decimated my chives in the spring. Thanks for your help.Barbara

These are aphids, not leaf miners. Take a look at our webpage about aphids, which includes information on their life cycle and the best methods to control them. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/aphids-trees-and-shrubs
