I'd go for either boiling water poured into/over the pots, or once it gets really hot out, each pot+dirt gets to spend a few days in the freezer. Spider mites survive the winter because daylight changes let them know it's coming and they make physiological changes accordingly - but a sudden change without warning seems likely to be lethal.
Make sure your infected plants aren't where winds can blow from them towards your growing areas. The mites use their webbing to windsurf.
Spider Mites? - Page 2 671790 GRRRRR! Windsurfing? Really? Spider Mites? - Page 2 671790 I like the boiling water idea. I may try that multiple times. Twisted Evil If nothing else, it will be good therapy as I remember each plant that succumbed to the little monsters.

My deck is a long way from any regular growing areas, but very close to my potted citrus trees. Will the little #$%s get on them?

Probably -- but if your citrus trees have been in that location for awhile and were susceptible I'd think they'd already have them. The spider mites came from somewhere (outside?) after all. Misting with water once or twice a day might help since the mites prefer dry (and especially stressed/under-watered) plants.

thanks , Beetles. It looks like I'm losing every plant I grew inside over the winter. Sad Spider Mites? - Page 2 671790

CN, Have you sprayed them with Neem oil solution? Mist with water between spraying? You, Audrey and I all suffer from spider mites.

Can't find Neem oil or seaweed. Today I used that Garden Safe 3 in 1 spray and I read a recipe that calls for cinnamon, cloves, Italian seasoning and fresh garlic, but I don't have any garlic, so I can't try that one, yet. I lost most of my ground cherries, all of my purple basil, and most of my lemon balm, bee balm, and too much else to list. I had to buy plants to make up for what I lost in cukes and melons. Sad I am going to replant all seeds, lick my wounds, and move on. Note to self: BE MORE VIGILANT! If I had identified the problem sooner, I could be winning this war by now. Mad

Garden Safe 3 has Neem oil as an ingredient. I have Green Light Neem Oil concentrate and make up a batch as needed. I have a small basket of spray bottles marked for different products, i.e., milk, Neem oil, Dr. Bronner's soap, etc.

It was bound to happen. The red spider mites devastated the Dragon Tongue beans. Sad I started cutting the plants down this evening to the second nodes, and will spray with Neem Oil at sundown on Sunday. Sometimes they send out laterals and I can get a second flush of beans.

Twue. My main goal right now, besides keeping up with harvesting and processing, is to keep the plants alive until Sept.
