@chebellestelle garlic spray or cloves around base plant might help.

A very weak mix of fairy liquid & water in a spray bottle , spray all over the plant leave for a little while then rinse off with water best time to do it is when sun is going down , hope this helps @chebellestelle 🐌🐌🐌😘

I did the soap and water spray and used the sprayer on the hose to rinse them away. I didn't have any garlic but might try that next, there are still some aphids alive so I'll need to treat them again.
