You have aphids...I would try one of  the following...I would put a piece of plastic over the soil so that they don't end
up in the soil..then you will be forever with them..

 

Getting rid of aphids.....they are a PITN.

Try spraying cold water on the leaves; sometimes all aphids need is a cool blast to dislodge them.
If you have a large aphid invasion, dust plants with flour. It constipates the pests.
Neem oil, insecticidal soaps, and horticultural oils are effective against aphids. Be sure to follow the application instructions provided on the packaging.
Spraying the leaves of the plant with a mild solution of water and a few drops of dish soap. Soapy water should be reapplied every 2-3 days for 2 weeks.
One variation of this soap-water mix includes cayenne pepper: Stir together 1 quart water, 1 tsp liquid dish soap, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Do not dilute before spraying on plants.
Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a non-toxic, organic material that will kill aphids. Do not apply DE when plants are in bloom; it is harmful to pollinators, too.

I love DE...it works for me all the time...I use a sml paint brush & apply it ..it won't hurt your Plant.

 

Keep an eye on your plants..aphids love to hide & multiply by the 100's & then some  in a matter of hours.Good LUCK. ;)
