Disgusting Potato Bugs and Dead Nettle

Has anyone had any luck getting rid of the rotten Colorado potato beetle by planting Dead Nettle? I have read that planting dead Nettle will help and was wondering if anyone has tried this. So far I've been picking the bugs and eggs off (a kind of disgusting chore) but was considering inter-planting dead nettle as a remedy.
It's very hard to hate bugs and pesticides all at the same time.

gardens. But it's a perennial and will slowly spread over your entire garden. A pretty plant with a long blooming period, but it seems a shame to plant it every year and then rip it up.
I have no idea if it repels any insects - I've never seen any reference that says it does.
