I used dish soap and water on my garden all last summer with great success. The inexpensive store brand worked the best. Start with a few drops per 32 oz spray bottle, every other day for a few days. Then keep increasing the soap ratio as the plants get used to it. The bugs and slugs hate it but the bees seem to still work around it. Make sure you get the soil too because that's where they lay their eggs. Dish soap acts like a fertilizer for the soil too. I sprayed before dark and it worked great. Good luck!
