Organic Insecticidal Soap Recipes

Well, I've noticed several leafhoppers (Cicadellidae in the order Hemiptera) on my banana trees for about the past month and they continue to cause damage:

I've been spot spraying these guys with a safe insecticidal soap and they have been dropping dead. (Click on the thumbnail to read the entire label)

This spray has been effective but at $4.50 per bottle it is getting a little expensive. How else can I control these guys? Does anyone have a receipe for a homemade insecticical soap? What kind of soap? (Detergent? Non-detergent?) Any name brands of soap to use?

Thanks everyone!
