Q.Golden shrimp plant bracts covered in tiny black things. What are they?

Zone 33414 | elise0632 added on August 22, 2018 | Answered

I have two new golden shrimp plants in my garden, South Florida, 10A. I notice all the bracts have some kind of tiny black bug or larvae all over them. I have sprayed, mild organic pesticide, more aggressive types, and finally feed it a systemic but nothing stops them from coming back. What could they be?! I do also see tiny flys (not white fly) I suspect are involved.

It would be very hard to tell without a photo. If you can include one, then I will be more than glad to help.
