This year we have a bumper crop of potatoe bugs on our plants (I never had a problem with them in the past). What organic solution is there to dealing with these pests? We were three weeks late in getting our seed potatoes planted and up till three weeks ago our plants were robust and growing like crazy, today the bugs have invaded the patch.

I spray Garret Juice biweekly and side dress with compost and use organic fertizer etc.
