Hi, They can be difficult to get rid of once established. You need to spray at regular intervals with a houseplant insecticide to keep them in control. With small infestations, you can get rid of them with a Q-tip soaked in rubbing alcohol that you rub on each bug, but if you have a lot of them, you need to spray or toss the plants and start over with new plants. Just be sure to sterilize your pots with a bleach solution if you reuse the same pots.
