Second post since I posted in the new member forum.
I've got a good looking garden growing in ND and in the past week I've noticed a small white looking flying insect very prevalent in my garden on my corn plants in particular.
I've got three varieties growing. One is just now beginning to tassel. The second should begin in another week and the third about 2 weeks after.
The potential problem I have seen within the last week is a lot of the small white looking flying insects when I am hand watering/fertilizing my corn plants. They are everywhere when I walk through and water my corn plants. I tried to research and thought they were aphids personally but no luck on self identification.
Does anybody have any ideas what they are and if they are harmful. Up until this point I've just had to dodge mosquitos but these things have me concerned for my corn plants health.
I've got pole beans planted around my corn and some tomato and cherry tomato plants along with some cucumbers and pepper plants.
Anybody got any ideas or information if I should be concerned or not?
