There are a number of things that you can use for this. I prefer organic in almost anything I do, but there are chemical methods as well.

I like oils such as: Rosemary, lavender, garlic, clove, and neem... All make wonderful, and safe pest controls that you can mix, spray or water into the plant without hurting it.

Here is a link to a collection of articles that will help you find other methods for controlling insects:
