Hi, my friend bought me a zebra plant last year which is very healthy, but I've noticed that it has had an infestation of some bug for a long time. I have used bug spray and attempted to wipe them off but they just keep coming back! They don't appear to hurt the plant or spread to any other plants. They also don't appear to move a lot, they just sit on the newer leaves...any answers as to what they are and what needs to be done about them?

You have aphids. Use any houseplant insecticide about once a week until they stop coming back- usually 2 or 3 applications will do. You can also spray them off with plain water but you need some pressure to get them off. The reddish ones are alive and the whitish ones are cast off skins.
