Debugging dormant bulb pots?

Hello list-ers,

I will be bringing my dormant bulb pots from the garage into the 
newly-cleaned greenhouse soon.  I have had problems with pests (aphids, 
spider mites) in the greenhouse in the past.  Does anybody know if 
either of these pests (or others) can hide in the soil in the plant pots 
of these dormant bulbs?  They are mostly South African bulbs of  various 
sorts in very free draining/sandy/gravelly mixes.  If the pests can hide 
in the soil, is there a way to get rid of them before bringing the pots 
back into the greenhouse?

best regards
