I put my house plants outside for the summer it is now time to bring them in but I don't want uninvited pest. What can I do to make sure they are pest free.

There are two things you can do: hose the plants off to rinse away any hitchhikers plus their eggs, and flood the soil to rinse pests out. I immerse the pots in a large container of water. Bugs will float to the surface and you can skim them off. Enjoy your houseplants!
