Question about spraying for aphids with soapy water

12 years ago

So I wanted to figure this out before the aphids really kick in. Its starting to get warm here (FINALLY) so I expect to see them any day now.

Last year I had success spraying off the aphids with a dishsoap and water mixture (after having NO success with chemicals, go figure). However, since then in my request to be a little more environmentally responsible I've switched to a vegetable based, as opposed to petroleum based soap. Will it work also? or should I go out and get myself a bottle of the bad stuff?
