Controlling Aphids 
Homemade remedies are a longstanding tradition among organic gardeners, who have had to be creative in finding ways to battle insects and diseases without the help of synthetic chemicals. In the case of fighting aphids, two homemade sprays have proven very effective in controlling aphid infestations. For full details and recipes visit http://organicgardening.about.com/od/pestcontrol/a/spraysforaphids.htm
Warning: Some organic sprays are non-selective insecticides, which means that it will kill beneficial insects (such as lady bugs, who are natural predators of aphids) just as easily as it kills the bad guys. It's best to keep as many beneficials around as possible. If in doubt, sprays should only be used if you haven't seen any beneficial bugs in your garden.
