Our Coreopsis are infested just like your picture shows. Only the plants that have not bloom yet seems to be affected. Have you try to eliminate them? I used Neem oil - a few hours later the bugs are not moving. I hope this does not kill the plants. This is in Llano county; 2 miles south of Llano on Rio Llano. Thanks.
