pests Bugs on my Scorpion plant

Help please. I found 5 or 6 of these on the underside of my Scorpion peppers. The wife sprayed the plants down with dawn soap and water. Anything else I should try?

Aphid. The one in the picture actually looks like an aphid mummy, which happens after a parasitic wasp lays an egg in an aphid. Go ahead and kill any live aphids you find (Neem, Pyrethrin and Castile soap all work), but I would leave any aphid mummies alone, as a parasitic wasp (beneficial) will eventually hatch out of it.
