I was recently checking my peace lily and I noticed these white "balls" in the outside of her terra-cotta pot. They look like some sort of pest and there's also black/metallic looking ones as well. What are these pests and most importantly how do I get rid of them? I hope my other plants near them don't get whatever my peace lily has :(

They are too small to identify. Are you finding them anywhere else besides on the outside of the pot?

No, I've only seen them outside the pot but I cleaned it with a disinfectant wipe and make sure none of the leaves had them either. I've isolate my peace lily from all my other plants in case.
