Does anyone know how to get rid of Harlequin Bugs organically? They are on several of my plants including my Butterfly Bush. I don't want to spray it with anything that will alienate the butterflies.

Harlequin bugs are pretty, but they can sure do some damage. You can spot spray with the Garrett Juice formula mixed with (per gallon of mixture) 2 ounces of orange oil. There are some plants that they are attracted to that you could add just to divert them. Here are a few: turnip greens, cabbage, mustard and radishes.
