Infestation of Bugs on my wild flower garden

Asked March 28, 2019, 5:12 PM EDT

I have 1/16" very small black bug (light metallic green on back) on outdoor flower garden - I have never seen before in years past. (I tried to get a picture) too small
This is at our home in Ahwatukee AZ
The only thing I did differently this year was to put Llama manure on soil this past November (I got Llama manure from White Mountain area) from a friend (we have a 2nd home up there.
I only use organic, soil, fertilizer, etc - as to keep the soil healthy and healthy for all butterflies, birds, etc...

My best guess without seeing an image of the insect would be a flea beetle. You can find an image and description here:
If you are able to send a photo, that would be most helpful!
