I tried a handheld vacuum cleaner one year for blister beetles.  The model I 
had was pretty useless -- it ran for only 20 minutes before using up its 
charge, then had to get recharged for 12-24 hours.

My friend Mary Anne tried this spray on cabbage last summer for harlequin 
bugs and said it worked well (haven't tried it myself).  Think she got the 
recipe from Organic Gardening.  Anyway, the recipe is 1/3 c. veg oil, 1 tsp. 
baking soda, and 1 c. water.
