Getting Rid of Pests on Potatoes

How do you get rid of garden pests on potatoes? In the past we would use potato dust, but it is not available anymore. Thanks in advance.

Back in the seventies what we did was go and hand pick the "potato bugs" off and drop them into an empty vegetable can that had a little bit of gasoline in it. It was a nasty job, but we did it.
