Looking for an effective pesticide that won't harm plants

I used a household/garden insect spray on our garden flowers that were getting chewed up by insects. The spray contains Pyrithrins (0.02%) and Piperonyl Butoxide0.20%). Unfortunately, it also damaged the petals of the flowers, mostly pansies. I need an effective insecticide that won't damage flowers, please. Can you recommend one? I have used something (can't remember what) that touted being a safe insecticide and caused the insects to essentially blow up. Can you tell me what that might have been? It worked great. Thanks Mike Reding

Latin Names

The Oregonian publishes pictures of weeds with common names, I'd like to know their Latin or Botanic names.

Aphid control

Here's an answer for aphid control. 4 years ago I planted sweet alyssum on my balcony and in my raised bed garden, I live in a senior apartment building, Alyssum attract hover flies and they love to eat aphids. I've had no aphids and the plants even overwinter if covered on the coldest nights. Go Beavers RonTom
