Can’t tell from that picture what they are. To far out of focus. Do you have any leaf damage?

What's good Roller man?

Are they moving quickly and leaving damage? If so, probably adult thrip.

Can't see a head - Have you seen moths about the plants area?
Second thought is looks like a baby cutworm

Either way, I would kill it and ID later :smoke:

These are someone else's plants. My guess was thrift as well but the moth thing seems pertinent. Thanks Mr g
