I wish there were a magic potion but not all bugs can be controlled with a single product and not all products are safe to use on all plants. Try to collect a few of the bugs in a plastic bag and take them to your cooperative extension office or well staffed nursery for identification. Then identify the plant they are bothering. Once you have this information you can make a good decision on whether to control them chemically, pick them off your plants or wait for beneficial insects to arrive and eliminate the destructive pests. Good luck with your garden.
