Do not use sprays that are meant to be used outside or those for controlling indoor house pests such as roaches or ants. Mealybugs, scale and spider mites all can be controlled by horticultural oil sprays. These insecticides kill pests by suffocation and are relatively low in toxicity. Year Round Spray Oil is an example. If you can’t find an appropriate indoor-safe product, move the plants outside for treatment and then bring them back inside when the spray has dried. Premixed, ready-to-use indoor plant insecticides containing insecticidal soap, pyrethrin, pyrethrum or other active ingredients are readily available. They are generally excellent for mites and mealybugs but not very effective on adult scale.
