a certain insect

I found a ton of these bugs on the picture of my plant I’m sending. Also there were some that were black with flat backs. It really has messed up the pods. Do you know what this insect is and what to use to kill it?
Thanks,
Gayle

These are the nymphs (young) of a leaf-footed bug. These insects are indeed pests that damage plants by sucking their juices. The damage is usually mild but can be more severe with a heavy infestation or under certain conditions. See these articles for help:
