Most any area affect power at point blank will do the trick. Run up to a wall and Incinerate or Singularity. Alternatively have a friend shoot it off of you. Since there's no friendly fire they don't have to worry about hitting you in the process.

They will actually instantly explode once they jump and hit you, so the only way to get rid of them is preventing them from jumping at you in the first place.
