I have a small tree datura that I just brought in for the winter, and just noticed a very large amount of aphids on the plant that were not visible last week. How can I control them? I have segregated this plant from all my others so they won't spread, but need to eliminate them.

Insecticidal soap should work, even a good spray outdoors with the garden hose should send those bugs flying.
You'll probably need to do one, or both of these treatments more than once though to get them all.
