I have washed them off with strong water spray, but they came back in a few days, in an army! I used a mild soap and water spray then and they are back already. Help!

I think they are aphids, which come in many different colors. If the pic was a close up I could tell you for sure. Compare to the photo I uploaded. I used to think they were bug eggs on the stems of my plants until I noticed their legs!
Insecticidal soap (not homemade), or Sevin spray should work on them, as they are soft-bodied. Don't delay!
