I am sure you saw this post.  I have the catalog at my office where my

roll.  I don't recollect seing anyone who sold part rolls of silver

NOTE: This a 1995 listing, some add and numbers may have been changed
Just giving you what I have.

Silver and white are the only 2 that I have seen that repell aphids,
Yellow attracts some aphids and some whiteflies
Blue attracts some types of thrips 

Tomorrow if I get the chance I will check on this.  Will let you know in 
anycase.  If nothing works for you, let me know.  One of these listed 
above is in Reading, MA which is just a few towns over from me.
