Hi everybody, just wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to get rid of aphids on my lettuce? Any homemade remedies? Or greener options? My mother-in-law said to try flea powder with pyrethrin in it BUT its the other ingredients I believe would probably kill you, so thats a NO GO! Im going to give a shot at companion gardening and plant some pyrethium daisy but any other ideas would be great.

A suggestion from our eco competition earlier in the year was a mix of garlic skins with diluted detergent with part oil as an aphid spray.
