Is dish soap an effective organic method of pest control?

I'd appreciate a formula or recipe.

There are several. Many bugs, earwigs in particular, are, much like frat boys, attracted to the scent of beer. Leave a cup of beer out where ever you have seen earwigs and they will happily lean in for a taste and take an accidental dip. Too bad these guys can't swim!

Yes mix Dawn dish soap to get rid of bees, Mix vinegar to kill potato bugs. 5 drops of dish soap to a quart of water.

Yes it is. Dish soaps killes ants and other small bugs. They do not kill spiders or beetles. Just a ounce of soap with a water filled spray bottle.
