Long Tall Sally expounded:

You have the dreaded Marphistes aphids.


You back again? Crawl back under your bridge.

To the original poster, this joker is a troll. Don't do anything with
muriatic acid, the troll is just trying to hurt someone who doesn't
know any better.

As for your aphids, a hard stream of water will knock them off, if
necessary, use one of the soap solutions recommended for gardens.
