I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
Try using a product with pyrethrum or one with insectidical soap. Spray very early in the morning and direct the spray upward from beneath the plant. If this doesn't work those pests are not aphids and you should take them in to your local County Extension Office and see if they can identify the problem and if necessary prescribe an appropriate remedy.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
