Are these pests?
Google seems to think they are some sort of moth but I can't find any info about them and house plants.

I have these in my apartment as well. I think it’s a leaf hopper. We have a Katchy that takes care of them mostly. We’ll worth the investment if you want to get rid of them. Or you can use a neem oil solution and diatomaceous earth.
Look up kitchen moths !!
@PlantMompy here is a natural way:

Moths and other insects are repelled by the pheromones in cedar. Combine dried, crushed, and powdered herbs. Combine the following in a bag that you can hang anywhere you keep clothes or food: lavender, bay leaves, cloves, rosemary, and thyme. Moths also hate the odors of these herbs.
@PlantNerds is right as well, I keep that on hand at all times for all sorts of pests. @sarahsalith can tell you more about it. She turned me on to it.
Those bugs in your plant are leaf hoppers, they suck the life out of your plants!
Great another new fear unlocked 😫
@AshleyK seriously! What the heck!?
@PlantNerds currently googling Katchy! Good to know!
@lemrobs we got ours on Amazon for like $45
