wooly aphid on box

How do I get rid of wooly aphid on my box bushes? I’ve read this wooly aphid only occurs on ageing apples trees and its not listed on the long list of bugs that eat box. There is no damage as yet to my bushes. But there is wool in every single leaf base with one or two aphids next to the wool.
