Low or Non-toxic Solutions for Indoor Plant Pests

I love my indoor plants. Sometimes they get pests and I don't like using chemicals on them. For example, I have a 10' fiddle leaf fig in the center of my house and it recently came down with what the nursery said was cottony scale, but I think is mealy bugs. In any case, I just found a great website with information on how to kill pests on indoor plants with minimal poison. It's the University of Missouri's Least-Toxic Control Methods to Manage Indoor Plant Pests. Just thought I'd share.

Thanks, this is very helpful. I was given a potion for spraying my orchids that I like. It uses Formula 401, rubbing alcohol, dish soap and lots of water. It works pretty well.
