Banana Peels to get rid of pesky aphids

Though my spring/summer garden is dwindling I still have some plants but the aphids are sucking the life out of some of them.  Aphids to plants are like head lice to humans.  They are tiny and annoying and they do damage.  I found a few links on pinterest that had organic ways to get rid of aphids.  I don't want to spray pesticides on my garden.

First you eat a banana and save the peel.

Cut the peel into small pieces.

Then spread around your infected plants.

I read that you can cover the peels with some dirt, but I had to go to work and didn't have time.

When I got home, the pieces were hard to see because they turned black.  I didn't cover with dirt.  I have just left the peels on top.
