I'd hand pick insect pests or use a strong stream of water from the hose to dislodge them. Leafy greens are especially tender and sensitive to pest control products. And, it's difficult to rinse pesticides off the leaves before consuming them. As for your other veggies, rotenone or pyrethrum based sprays are considered eco-friendly. Be sure to read and apply according to label directions.
