Since we don't know what the bugs are and what the plant is, the best control is to rinse them off your plant. There are some insecticides available for houseplants but they are insect specific and not all are safe to use on all houseplants. So, the best thing to do is to rinse them off and inspect your plant every few days. If you find more, rinse them off again. Eventually you'll get rid of those pesky bugs.
