Spritz the plants with a diluted solution of warm water and 5% dishwashing
liquid, i.e. palmolive as in my case; every 3 days and your plants will be
rid of flies, spider mites, and aphids. I do that to all my plants when I
bring them in for the winter, mostly to the bamboo plants, as they are very
vulnerable to spider mites.

Good luck.
