My Mint leaves  are  curled only at the top .  I can see some tiny insects there.

What organic pesticides can be used?

Thanks for the tip. I tried Neem Oil , BT and Trichoderma. I do not know which one worked but the Mint seems to be on way to recovery. I could see some very small black spots but no ants.
