The persimmon in my orchard is covered in tiny fly like bugs. Can you help me to identify them please?

Hi Leann,

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

Looks like the insect is similar to lesser dung fly, however, best to contact your local museum for further confirmation.

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
