Is there anything that will kill aphids but not caterpillars?

My first choice would be an insecticidal soap. If the plant can withstand high water pressure you can wash off the aphids. Neem oil is another option but it can damage tender leaves. Not knowing what plants they are on somewhat limits my response. I also included a link to a fact sheet on aphid control. If you need more information please call 361-587-3400 ask for Bob

Thank you so much! I guess I should have mentioned they're on my hibiscus.

You're welcome if you need anything else feel free to call. BRMc
