Q.What are these bugs on my tomato plant?

There are hundreds on my tomato plants but they don’t seem to be causing any noticeable damage. They are light black and have wings but they tend to just walk around when poked and are very easy to kill by hand. They’re not attracted to any other plants either.

That is a tomato leaf miner. It is definitely doing damage to your plants. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/leaf-miner-control.htm
