Hermie with aphids eating roots. Advice?

  1. I just killed a hermie plant (one of my two mothers). Spider mites were attacking it like mad so it was good to rid myself of it anyway.

    I broke open the rockwool and right below the plant I found brown mulchy substance and it concerned me. I also saw a live aphid crawling around and previously I had a bad green aphid infestation that would eat at my roots. I took this to mean the bastard burrowed and was still eating my roots, possibly causing my hermie condition.

    What is the best method of flushing the rockwool to rid myself of the last aphids. Pyrethrium or whatever or is there something better? Do I mix it in with nutrients or do I just use a mixture and water?

    The aphids came from a rose bush outside my house thanks to my girlfriend she brought in some roses and whammo, you know the rest. I promptly scolded her and cut down all my rose bushes as a precaution.

    Advice needed please. I don't want my last Bubble Gum x OG Mother going hermie on me.
