Controlling pests on indoor plants can be very easy when some research on the problem has been completed. 

There are several ways to prevent and maintain indoor plants and primarily care for them when spider mites and aphids start to take over your indoor plants.

One needs to get rid of these pests with natural ingredients if there are pets and small children inside the home. Don't let these come in contact with harsh products that will contain harmful chemicals. There are lots of natural ways to take care of these problems. If the spider mites start to eat away at a plant, a simple water solution and buttermilk will take care of this. Just mix half and a half into a spray bottle and spray a thick coat on the plant. It will need to be done in a sink or a bathtub to ensure that the solution does not get all over everything else. It is also best to place the plant in an area where they will be by themselves so that the mites will not move from one plant to the other. It is also good if aphids are attacking plants to kill a few in the plant. The other aphids will not like the odor that the dead will be omitting and go somewhere else. It needs to be done outside to give the aphids time to get off the plant and find homes elsewhere. When having indoor plants, there are always risks of mites and other pests are getting to them and destroying them. Do some research online or even contact a home and garden center to see some natural ways to resolve the problem. They are using those sprays that contain strong chemicals that can harm other things living in the home.
