Sticky traps can work when hung near or on your plants; ladybugs will feed on the eggs; hosing them off with water will make them go away for a while. Soap spray can kill them if you spray them directly. Aside from these, commercially prepared insecticidal soap (such as Safer's) is generally accepted by organic growers. Hope this information helps!
