|Hi guys I'm new to the forum and to gardening. I have a plant in my yard I'm not sure what species of plant. However there looks like a bug infestation and I'm not sure how to handle it. Does anyone have suggestions. (Pic attached)
Some info. I'm in a south western Ontario (Canada) its late may.
Thank you for the help! It's much appreciated!

|It looks like aphids. Washing them off with soapy water is an option but you will have to repeat it every day. My longer term fix is rubbing alcohol (mixed 1 part alcohol and 3 parts water) used in a sprayer. Spray when the plant is in the shade (or at dusk) and rinse the plant well after spraying. Watch for re-infestations.
