Garden bug/insect decoy ideas

So, I know about nasturtiums, marigolds and lady bugs being effective decoys for evil bug predators in the garden, but this morning I stumbled onto an article about BRUSSELS SPROUTS being aphid magnets in the rose garden (I was thinking dahlia bed - but ...)


Do you have any decoys you want to add/ talk about? I am always looking for ways to save my plants without pouring bad stuff on them.
