They always make me think of Alice in Wonderland.
These suckers are hardy. Even I have trouble killing them off.
These little freeloaders wont be around much longer, just got to get some spray. Creepy little buggers.
EDIT: got my spray, and these little devils are DEAD DEAD DEAD. they were also on my mini rose bush AND my white rose bush. So were some black flies. DEAD now, all of them bwahahahahhaha. Sprayed every rose bush I got, just to make sure, too.
Turns out the little black mite like thing was blackfly (by the picture on the kill 'em all bottle) and THEY were all over my yellow rose bush. No more!
*twirles fly killing spray and holsters it*
