Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: I love this one! To get rid of aphids without spraying a thing on your plant...get a yellow tennis ball and stick an eye hook in it and hang it just above the infested plant. Cover the ball with petroleum jelly and watch what happens. The aphids are attracted to this yellow color and get stuck to the tennis ball and die! To make this less messy, wrap a sandwich back around the ball before coating it with the goo and all you need to do is slip off the baggie and toss it in the bin!
