I would try Neem oil. I do not know how I survived without this stuff. I use it as light oil and dormant oil. For the past five years I spray any plant that comes in the house and I am bug free all winter. Except about three winters ago: I was tied up with other stuff and frost was threatening; I hauled everything in without their Neem oil spray. I didn't think too much about it. I had HUGE infestations of white fly, scale, and hatching blue bottle flies!! I spray the mulch on the tops of the pots and soak the underside and stems. Ideally, I even try to get 2 separate sprays in. This winter it didn't happen--only 1 spray; so far no bugs. WHEW. Even this late I'd load a little one gallon sprayer and do a 3/4 strength spray on all indoor stuff (with some discretion on delicate stuff).
