Homemade Natural Pesticide for Vegetables

Does anyone know a natural pesticide that can be used for vegetables? The bugs are starting to eat my pepper plants and tomato plants. I have heard of one with dish soap as part of the recipe, but don't know what the mixture is.

My friend uses garlic oil. She sprayed it directly on to remove bugs. This only works for some veggies and might leave a strong taste. On apple and fruit trees you can use spray-on Mineral Oil. At plant nurseries they sell an organic liquid soap that's made to spray on veggies to kill and remove bugs. This is safe for food.

Here's a natural bug killer made from orange petals. It's a safe bug-killer that can be used in kitchens, and around babies, kids, and pets. It's totally safe, but I don't think you can spray it directly on to garden veggies. You can spray it around the perimeter of your garden. It's called "Orange Guard":
