Sanitizing Bulbs

Here in the Chicago area we have to lift and bring in our tender bulbs,
like the Elephant Ears.  I store mine under the bench in the greenhouse
which runs about 60 degrees F through the winter.  In late winter I
start to observe colonies of aphids on the "sprout" ends of the tubers
which then want to spread to the rest of the greenhouse.  Has anyone has
success with sanitizing tubers/bulbs for problems like this?  Sprays
don't control them, at least none of the sprays I want to use in a
closed environment like this.
