Tomato Bug Best.jpg I have hundreds of these very tiny white bugs on 6 tomato plants. They are almost see-through with sticky black feet. They look like they could be Aphid nymph castings but I'm not sure. They are motionless, completely formed with head, a slender body, legs, etc., but no wings. They can be seen very clearly with a 10 power loupe. I can brush them off, but they do stick. They are not on any of my other vegetables (lettuce). I have done several searches on the internet to find photos of them but don't find any.
Can you help identify them? Attached is a micro-photo I've taken of one of them. This bug is about .010 - .015" in length.
I don't think they're Aphids or Whiteflies.

I have no idea what that could be. I don't think I've ever even seen a bug like that before so maybe I don't get them in my region.

Hi patiofarm2 I've searched some images of tomato pests and closest i could get is they look like aphid larvae during the growth stage.
check out gardenphotos.com, they've got hundreds of images of garden pests. Hope this helps. See ya!
