SOLVED: HELP! Ugly bugs on my poor little milkweed!

Sarasota, FL(Zone 9a)

Can anyone tell me what these uglies are and how to get rid of them without chemicals? These are 4 yellow milkweeds that are new cuttings and are now under attack!

Thanks in advance,

Yellow peach aphids, yuck!!! Just squish as many as you can and rinse what's left off with soapy water. This is a good larval food for the Monarch Butterfly, so check for baby monarchs first. I kept meaning to spray mine, kept forgetting. I went out one day and the baby ladybugs(they look like little dragons) were eating them(aphids) all up!!

Thanks for posting this - they're all over my milkweed, too and I've been wondering what to do about them!
