i live in Miami, Fl and lately finding an orange pollen looking substance on my milkweed plants. Are these aphids and how can i control them? I've never had a problem before. This has been the first year that I've had numerous Monarchs, in all stages, on my plants and want to keep it that way!

It is difficult to say without an image. It could just be the pollen sitting on the flowers.
