Aphids, Begone!

From Jenni's Garden:

Suddenly we noticed little black bugs all over the garlic chives (oddly enough not on the regular chives right next to it). Thank goodness for Google - typed in "little black bugs on chives" and ended up discovering that we had an aphid problem, and found a list of solutions. I chose two - blast them with a hose to remove them from the plant, then put aluminum foil around the chives to "blind" the aphids and keep them away. The hose took care of the current population, hoping that they stay away!
