overwintering dipladenia

Zone Oklahoma City | ChristyDeann added on September 29, 2015 | Answered

I have a dipladenia that I bought this summer and plan on overwintering indoors (zone 7). There are some very small bugs on the tips, yellow in color and I don't really want to bring them indoors. What should I do to get rid of them before I bring it inside?
