But don't they just wash onto the soil and multiply? It doesn't kill them does it? I am buried in aphids in my raised beds especially the brocs and bok choy. Then they jump to the lettuce. Miserable to try to wash off to make them edible.

dumb aphids!! Whistling

It didn't kill them, but since I did this every day, it kept my plants from getting eaten alive.
