Aphids are not sturdy creatures. If you have a hose-end sprayer, fill it with about 3 ounces of any liquid soap that isn't anti-bacterial (it's bad for the soil) and about 1/4 oz of any liquid cooking oil you have on-hand. Corn, canola, olive, doesn't matter.
Attach to the hose, set it for about 3 oz per gallon, and thoroughly spray your crepe myrtle, soaking the front and back of each leaf, all branches, and twigs. Don't worry about runoff. Plan on bathing afterward.
Check in a week or so. Repeat as necessary.
