Leaf footed bug nymphs

Spotted a cluster of them on one of my pepper plants yesterday. I sprayed the cluster with Eight. They're probably on my tomatoes and beans as well, just haven't spotted any. Most of my plants are flowering (and I'm almost out of Eight) so I'm wondering if there are any better methods of control that won't hurt pollinators. TIA

Put a few drops of dawn dish soap in a sprayer bottle of water. It won't be a deterrent but it'll contact kill them.

ETA: The dish soap blocks their airways and suffocates them. They won't die instantly but after a minute or so they will fall off.
