One of the biggest enemies of aphids is the Ladybug.  In fact the ladybug larvae which eats more than the ladybugs do.

Other natural predetors are hoverfly, lace wing and small birds.

To attract these though you need to have a healthy garden and not use chemical sprays.

There is a chemical called Pyrethrum and it's a good way to deal with them.  Hoever it will kill the natural predators as well
