    if you have any warm days left, take it outside now and re-pot it there.

    If not, perhaps the garage?

    If not, describe the bug to someone at a garden shop, unless you can actually find someone to ask at a DIY store.

    Then get an indoor bug killer chemical and spray the dirt, while the plant is in the bathtub.

    I’d Do that for up to 3 days, making sure the tub is rinsed right away each time.

    Then you can re-pot it in the bathtub without fear of sticking your hand in to a big bug.
