Hi.  I live in Boston.  I just got back from being away for a month,
leaving others in charge of the garden, and found my nasturtium--and ONLY
my nasturtium--infested with something or other.  The mama bug, I think,
is about a eighth-quarter inch long, black, with little orange spots.  The
babies (if they are her babies) are black oval specks.  They are
EVERYWHERE, but ONLY on the nasturium, and they are of course killing
it--the leaves are turning a horrible yellow.  I THINK, but am not sure,
that ants are eating the bugs, but not nearly enough.  

Any ideas?
