    A couple of drops of dawn dish soap in a full spray bottle of water will do it. Tip the bottle side to side to mix in the soap and spray the effected areas.

    Hi Sam, I spray mine with dish soap and water, let it set for about a half hour then rinse with clear water.

    I used seventh generation dish soap and water 1:1 ratio and sprayed that on my rose bushes to get rid of critters eating them.
