if you stop the indiscriminate killing of insects in your garden the beneficial insects and birds will be able to remove the aphids one by one for you.
We enjoyed watching bluetits harvesting aphids from our roses and now there are none left. There will be another crop of them of course but they will provide good for the ladybird larvae.
That really is the way to deal with aphids if you're a busy gardener :-)
