I use Insecticidal Soap but it takes repeat sprays to get them all. I usually alternate between spraying with Insecticidal Soap and hosing the plants off with plain water. A strong stream of water from the hose will rinse the pests away but new ones show up a few days later. I use Insecticidal Soap to do them in. Then 3-4 days later I hose the plant down. Between the two treatments and the fact that aphids prefer new growth to old, we seem to have struck an agreement in my garden. I hope this method works for you, as well.
