Patience will win the battle. When I worked at a greenhouse I would get houseplants in from customers that were gross. We even had a 4 foot tall cactus, that thing was covered! Get a spray bottle with a - is it 1 or 10% - that was a long time ago - solution of ivory soap. Alternate that with horticultural oil at the recommended dose. Spray often and spray heavy! You can also pick them off. This will kill them but the bodies will still be there, I spent alot of time cleaning that cactus...
