My Rhubarb plant has become infested with little black bugs. They look like little black seeds with tiny legs. Any ideas what they are or how I can get rid of them?

Happens to mine every year although this year I have not seen them yet. Really yucky but doesnt seem to do any harm. I have never found an answer - try hosing them down if not to bad, otherwise just pick the rhubarb and clean off well before eating. Usually I end up just pulling it all out.
