Any suggestions for killing aphids on watermelon plants?

Noticed yesterday that a portion of my container watermelon plants have what appear to be aphids. Just trying to get a plan together.

Blast with water from the hose. Repeat at intervals of a few days. Aphids are weak creatures and once they are knocked off they will have trouble getting back on the plants.
