Catnip plant

Zone Lexington Ky. 40503 | celticwolf68 added on June 27, 2016 | Answered

I've read that catnip plants are supposed to repel aphids. I have a plant that has black aphids all over it. I use this plant for tea and for my cats to chew on sometimes. I'm not sure what I can spray them with to kill the bugs without hurting me or my cats. I also have green ones on my lemon balm too. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.
