Hellebore is used as a classic organic insecticide.

Try putting about 2 ounces of hellebore root in your blender and add a cup of water. Blend thoroughly.

Filter out pulp with strainer, then filter the liquid futher with (at least) cheese cloth.

Put clean liquid in 1 gallon sprayer and fill to the 1 gallon mark.

Spraying with that solution should do a dandy job on azalea lacebugs.
