Aphids.

Aphids.

I have aphids on my indoor shamrock plant. Anyone have any brilliant ideas for getting rid of them? I've tried strong water sprays, a mist of soapy water (killed the shamrock leaves, incidentally...though they of course do keep sprouting more), and picking off affected leaves. I have a pot of basically naked shamrock corms with a few aphidy sprouts now. They're getting into the aloe and sucking it dry too. Anyone have a product that works well? (I FINALLY got the cats to stop eating the shamrock by smearing the lip of the pot with a thick layer of mentholatum, and now this. Eeesh.)
