A garden needs some insect activity in order to remain healthy. Insects transfer pollen from flower to flower so you don't want to kill all of the insects in your garden. Try capturing a few of the insects and having them identified. You might discover that they are some of the good guys in the garden - preying on the more destructive insects. A quick way to rid your garden of insects is to water the plants and direct the stream of water directly on the stems and leaves of your plants. You'll scare away the flying insects and make the crawling insects fall down off the plant. Enjoy your garden.
