Strange bugs on plant... help

So this quality isn't the greatest, and the bugs are horrid... but what are they, and how do I get rid of them?



They are covering a rose bush, and the bush really isn't looking good at all. I think it will die before it's able to sprout in a bit. I don't want it to die yet... we always kill our plants, but this bush grew very pretty last year and we have managed not to kill it yet.

Aphids I think in the absence of ladybirds I'd go for some dilute fairy liquid ( dish washing liquid). In a spray bottle

Ewwwwww, I would also tell you to investigate Neem oil sprays. Non-toxic in general but kills several garden pests.
