aphids killing my tulip

jeannieNYC(6)May 5, 2013

one of the tulips i planted looks terrible. upon closer inspection, I found aphids on the underside of the leaf. i was horrified to say the least. given the way it looks, wilted with its color literally sucked out of it. should i leave it? should i cut it? what happens to the bulb? please advise.
