Those bugs look like aphids, thrips and or scale. They cause damage to plants and must be taken care of asap, nasty little critters that literally mess up your plants. They slowly kill off plants by drinking the plant sap and can transmit plant diseases.
You can hose off or spray off as much as you can outside or in a drain and you can treat the plants with an insecticide, you can use any safe organic solutions or neem oil to get rid of them.
@HiPlantGuy thank you! i think they are aphids from looking at other pictures. i i used captain jacks dead bug spray and i will treat my other plants that were around it
