Root Aphids.... using azamax but I want instant kill PLEASE HELP!!!

I have two trays going ebb n flow rockwool and I got APHIDS that looks green and brown (picture included)

I used AZAMAX and it seem to control them I DID NOT see any survivors but they came back

My QUESTION IS ?What Are The Best Product to eliminate the APHIDS n make sure they dont come back??

THANKS

I copy this from another forum
"...my two sense about beating root aphids and other pests for that matter. I battled these guys for a lil bit and found that the only thing that kills root aphids ( in all their stages) is close supervision and a mixture of the following procedures in the proper order. First off you will need to kill all the one that are alive in whatever growing medium you are using. To do this use a liquid Pyrethrum dunk. Monterey gardens Take down is a great product to do the dunk with. 8ml per Gal is a good dilution rate with no damage to the root zone, Does not have to be flushed, but can and should be flushed with ph'ed water to remove the dead pests. can be done later or the next day. Now that you have most of the population dead you are 1/3 of the way there. Now it is important to use a Pyrethrum Fogger/Bomb to clear the environment of any pests that might have been out traveling during the pyrthrum dunk. I use the Pyrethrum TR fogger. Almost there... NO don't stop there it could all have been for a total waste. The last step is just as important as the others. For this I use Azamax Foliar spray.

anyone one knows anything about the monterrrey dunk pyrethrum??? or any othe products just as good or better? thank you all very much for your time GOD bless you all

Doesnt Azamax kill them pretty quick? Its what Ive used in the past for spidermites and I was actually able to kill them all with that stuff. I went completely crazy with that spray bottle and just drenched every inch of my plants and it worked. Never had aphids though so sorry I cant really help.

Yeah I use the Azamax for thrips and fungus gnats and it works quite well. Those aphids look a little tougher nut to crack though. I always make up a soil drench and a foliar spray and hit them from all sides. The trick though is that you have to reapply a second dose after 4-5 days to really get rid of everyone of the critters. If they are tougher you can mix it hotter then hit them with it 3 times at about 4 days apart. If you can find Forbid or floramite, THG says that is serious stuff, but I can't find it.

Sorry I know this is an older thread, but I have a buddy with this issue and since I have never had a problem, wanting to know what I should tell him to get. Which Bayer product did you use? Bayer is just a name brand and make tons of products?

Thanks
