We are having trouble with aphids on roses. Is there a home brew that can be mixed to deal with them?

I have read that using an organic (earth friendly) type liquid soap mixed with water, 1 tablespoon to a quart of water, then sprayed on them will get rid of them. I have also had times when just spraying the bushes down with a fairly hard spraying of water a couple times a day for 4 or 5 day days will send them packing. If you are under heavy attack and they will not leave, then you may want to buy some Bug B Gon Max that is in a hose end sprayer and spray the roses down with that. Usually one or two sprayings will get rid of them. There are some insecticides by Safer and one that is called Eco Sense that work pretty well too.
