Deep breath now...hold it...and out.

We're dealing with a green and a red aphid problem now, and the best solution from the 'net seems to be to just spray them off with water: lady bugs eventually fly away, and the pesticides don't work or kill the beneficial ones.
Those look like mites though. Try a google search.

take your eco-sense bottle and reuse it. For each quart of water add 1 tablespoon of liquid soap, like Dr Bonner's castile soap. You can add something like garlic to repell rabbits and deer also. thoroughly cover each leaf top and bottom, repeat by-weekly. If your water is exceptionally hard it could clog the applicator and is not as effective. Its tedious. I am doing this for our newly planted 14 fruit trees. took me a while to understand the frog comments. I really really like the little critters which are cute and really helpful for garden pests. I don't know if they like aphids though....I also really love a french sexy and mysterious. To promote peace everywhere start at home and with your neighbors.....internet included. Respect is what everyone wants and deserves. First Nation people consider frogs have the gift of water and rain they are also pollution detectors. rain is a purifier. All great things for gardeners.

It reads like something Jim Jones or Heavens Gate would have written.
