You might like to take a look at:

 (Look under Insect Growth Regulators (IGR), Diflubenzuron
 and Lufenuron)

 (Look for Diflubenzuron)

According to "Koi Health and Disease" by Dr. Erik L. Johnson,
D.V.M., Dimilin is non toxic to fish, plants, man or animals.

If you cannot get Diflubenzuron (trade name - Dimilin, Micromite),
you might like to try Lufenuron (trade name - PROGRAM) available
from your Vet.

Not sure whether Lufenuron is non toxic to fish, plants, man or
animals and whether Diflubenzuron or Lufenuron would be effective
against Aphids.

I have not used any of the above so try it if you dare AT YOUR
