    Use some Eco-friendly pesticides to get rid of them.

    Those look like mealybugs to me. They are soft bodied so if you put crushed shells in your soil it will tear up their bodies as they crawl. Also many other insects like lady bird beetles or lady bugs will eat them without harming your plant.
