pests Stuck between a rock and a hard place (aphids)

Not sure what to do. Some of my plants are being chewed upon by aphids but I have a slew of lady bugs, honey bees, and wasps that can't keep up. What are your suggestions? Do I blast the plants with pesticides and risk lack of pollination, let nature run its course, or just take a flame thrower to the whole lot? Thanks in advance!

Peppers most vulnerable to aphids are: Trinidad Scorpion, 7 pot Brain Strain, and Butch T Scorpion

Maybe neem oil? Or maybe an herb based oil?
