There are aphids all over my garden fruit and veggies. What can I use besides ladybugs that will kill the aphids, but be safe for the fruit?

Hosing them off your plants is a good first step. Safer's Insecticidal Soap is registered for use against aphids in vegetable gardens. Repeat applications are often required so be sure to read and apply according to label directions. Good luck with your veggies!
