Can anyone help me please? I've grown sunflowers for the first time from seed and when the flowers have appeared there's been wee black bug things which seem to come out of the flower head.....they've not eaten the sunflower or leaves but look pretty unsightly!  I've attached a photo incase anybody can help.  Thanks in advance...

    They're just pollen beetles. The won't harm you or the plant.
