Spraying should be preventive in nature or early intervention, not waiting for advanced infestations and infections. I monitor daily to recognize an early infection or infestation and use a general purpose 70% neem oil (repellent) and pyrethrins (contact, knock down) tank mix and spray every two weeks. Insecticidal soap is good for an active pest infestation, but has more issues of concern for applicator safety (eye burn damage) and foliar burn of some sensitive plants.
