I see what you suggest for aphids, but how often can you spray with oil? The eggs hatch in 3 days. Too much oil clogs the pores. Now what?

    Instead of using oil try spraying a mixture of dish soap, water and a table spoon of rubbing alcohol. Spray several times a week about twice a day and after it drys on then rinse the plants with luke warm water. I usually just put them in the shower for five minutes.
