Q: how to kill or eradicate. Tiny red crawling insect by my flower beds Tiny,Tiny So small you can barly see them but there is a lot of them 10x smaller than a tick

A: Mark, The only insect that comes to mind is red spider mites. Take a sample to your local independent garden center for an accurate Id and a recommendation of a product that will work for you. Insecticidal soap is low environmental impact product. Be sure to spray the undersides of the leaves and repeat every 4 to 5 days until there are no more signs of the insects.
