We won the war, but took some damage. The solution that destroyed the aphids also took a toll on the plants. They are bruised and battered, but will survive.
After talking with some green thumbs, their suggestion is to remove the oil from the armory. Oil will destroy your plants…fact (blast you eHow…you own me some peppers). Apparently, using a soap and water solution should do the trick, although it might take a couple applications.
My hate for aphids still burns, even in their absence.
