Chrono: an orchid grower friend of mine told me to mix water,rubbing alcohol,mineral oil and a small amount of dish soap into a spray bottle. He puts his orchids outside all summer long and then sprays this to make sure there are no bugs. It would be safe for you to use and not harm your pets or your baby. I had give a little spray usually every couple of waterings. Hope this helps Flowerchild aka Cindy
