Colony of Aphids found living on unidentified root plant


An unidentified root plant. The aphids dug a hole near their eggs in order to extract the milky sap. Plant is bleeding the sap in the pictures from root breakage caused by pulling it out of the ground


So far I have been unable to identify the plant the aphids are living on. If anyone knows please let me know, thanks!
