Transvaal katjiepiering

I have a beautiful Transvaal Katjiepiering with resident stink goggas.  In the [revious season the tree/shrub flowered but not recently.

I'm assuming the stink goggas is causing this.  Initialliy I hoped it was some form of symbiotic relationship.

I'm not keen on using pesticides to address this and would welcome any help!

    I HAD TO GO TO GOOGLE FOR A TRANSLATION FOR THIS.image 99% OF US HERE LIVE IN UK.image

    SO YOUR GARDENIA ISN’T FLOWERING AND YOU THINK THAT STINK BUGS MIGHT BE THE REASON WHY.

    TO BE HONEST, I DON’T KNOW.image IS THERE A SOUTH AFRICAN GARDENING GROUP YOU COULD ASK FOR ADVICE?
