I have a number of orchids in pots, but this year I am plagued with some sort of insect(s). The insect(s) are eating the orchids as they are about to flower. What can I do to prevent this without destroying the flowers? No photos available. Please help

I'm sorry your orchids are being used as a buffet for the bugs! Usually a good coat of insecticidal soap will get rid of any pests. Here's an article that may help you (and it includes a link to an article about Horticultural Soaps):
