What are these insects?

There in many different types of wood boring insects, from powder post beetles to carpenter bees. We suggest you take a photograph of the damage, collect any dead insects that you can find, and any frass (waste and sawdust from the exit holes). Package this up and send it to an entomologist. Unfortunately, your Profile does not indicate where you live. See the link below.

You may be able to ship by overnight post, but check which carrier accepts insects and arachnids.

Spiders and insects are packed like reptiles with one exception: instead of a bag, place your arachnid or insect in a plastic container with small air holes in the top and several moist paper towels below and above the animal. Close the container and seal it with tape to prevent jostling. Then place the container in a well-padded shipping box.

Insects are part of a complex ecosystem that keeps populations of any one insect from getting out of control. Even if there were a safe way to kill all of them en masse -- which there is not -- I'd advise against it.

You can manage earwig populations somewhat by getting rid of their hiding places, such as little piles of dead leaves.

It's important to identify the pest before you treat it, since different pests respond best to different remedies. Also, you want to be sure the insect you're seeing is actually a pest, not an innocent bystander or even beneficial insect. In your case, I can't be sure what the pests are but they might be aphids. In this case, my first defense would be to simply hose off the plant, washing the insects off the top and undersides of the leaves, focusing especially on the new growth. Do this in the morning so the foliage dries quickly in the sun. Try doing this every morning for a few days. If that doesn't control the outbreak, try spraying with insecticidal soap.
