    Dawn dish soap and about 1 cup of water to 2 tablespoons of dawn. Put in sprayer bottle.

    Soap Spray – Mix ½ teaspoon mild dish soap and 1 teaspoon cooking oil in a 1-quart sprayer filled with water. Spray liberally over entire plant. Bring in Ladybugs – To keep aphids in check, release ladybugs on the affected plant. They will stay as long as there is shelter and host bugs to feed on.

    Hi Linda: Nope, you can't go wrong with the soap spray. Be sure to spray the tops and bottoms of your plants leaves and the stems. Heck, to the whole bush! Good luck
