I have used Neem Oil Extract or horticultural oil on my indoor citrus so I am thinking they may be ok to use on figs.  I recommend finding the manufactures online and read the instructions/label before purchasing though just to be on the safe side.  Both products do have a slight scent so keep the treated trees away from people or pets that are sensitive to odors like birds for at least 24 hours.

Man I'm sorry I was so upset that we have low-octane spirits and we were ready to party celebrate. You can take Dawn soap couple of spoonfuls in in a spray mist bottle and miss that. Couple times and shuts off the oxygen and kills a mites old school organic

Yes dish soap, about 1tsp per quart of water. Spray the leaves good, it works as contact insecticide.
