We mixed up a spray with essential oils:
10 ml (1/3 oz) marigold oil (this is the tagetes, not calendula)
10 ml rosemary
10 ml peppermint
1 oz dish soap (7th generation)
mix into 1 gallon water and spray.  

If you can't find marigold, use citronella, orange, lemongrass, etc.  

The bugs come back and you have to respray but it's keeping our plants going.
