I have these bugs all over the Lilies, the Lilies are planted all over the garden in different locations but they all have these. I am cutting down the Lily stalks and burning them. Anyone know what they are? Aphids?????

For sure aphids. They love the wax on the lilies. Bug b gone liquid concentrate worked for me just fine. Insecticide soap seemed to not do the trick. They love hiding under leaves where it's dry. Check irises too if you have any!
Severe aphid invasion. Note that female aphids can reproduce without males and that the unborn babies are already pregnant themselves, so they reproduce at an enormous rate. Spray them off with a garden hose or some type of soapy water helps too is what I've read.
