Although it could be a number of insect pests, I have a treatment that I use for a broad range of pests. You can ignore the soil preparation part, but it wouldn't hurt to do that as well.

My recipe is as follows: First, you will want to prime your soil with wettable sulfur (for fungus control) and dolomitic lime. (for balancing pH, supplementing magnesium, and calcium.) Then, you will mix the following in a spray bottle with warm water, and a spoonful of coconut oil- Neem oil, rosemary oil, garlic extract, thyme oil, cinnamon extract, and for heavier insect infestations, Clove oil.
Spray as often as needed.
