 Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could help me identify these little bugs that are crawling all over the stems of my sambucus nigra?

Many thanks 


I think they are blackfly, especially as there is an ant there. Aphids, black and green are like cows for ants who milk them. Spray with soapy water. I don't know what they will do to sambucus, but they can ruin broad beans.

I have the same things on my sambucus ingra!!! They look like Beatles!!!! 


Crikey No, but don't like the look of them . Will check mine tomorrow...YUK



 These are sap beetles below



Sorry, I still think they are black fly aphids.



nothing else comes in clusters like that
