There are several products you can use on Garden vegetables that are effective.
My #1 recommendation for garden bugs and pests is Cyonara Lawn and Garden Insecticide. Its a very good product, gives a quick kill with a good residual action to kill future invading pests.
#2 recommendation, and something more on the natural level is Riptide Natural Pyrethrum Concentrate. Its all natural pyrethrum made from chysanthemum flowers and works well. It does not leave a residual.
#3 recommendation for gardens is Sevin Insecticide. I am not a big fan of Sevin, as it leaves a white residual powder behind, and is messy, but it does a decent job of killing bugs, not as well as Cyonar.
#4 recommendation and completely natural is Garlic Spray, called Mosquito Barrier. Don't let the name fool you, it works great on gardens and is all natural.
There are other products, and some people may disagree with my selection, but in my opinion and over 35 years of experience, these products work the best. They also do not leave much of a residual inside the vegetables that could be harmful, yet they are strong enough to kill and provide good control and protection. Hope this helps.
