What pest covers almost every geranium leaf that it eats with little black eggs?

Night-flying moths cover geranium leaves with little black eggs, which hatch into leaf-eating larvae. The pest therefore involves two stages in the life cycle of a lepidopteran. The adult lays the eggs while the larvae, known as budworms, devour the foliage.
