How to save ornamental corn from aphids after the silk starts

For years I have tried ornamental/indian corn.  It does just fine until the silk shows.

Never had an aphid anywhere near the plant before the silk and it seems like overnight

they show up and the plants are ruined.  I bought seed to try it one last summer.


I rarely use any pesticides in my garden. Is this one occasion where I should spray the corn on a regular basis

before the silk shows?


How can I get past this?  I am in the SF Bay Area, right across the bay from San Francisco.
