The only Product That will get rid of your spidermite 100% is a product called DeadRed and is quite hard to find none of these other products will help at all, one application of Deadred and that is it :) good luck.
 
I have tried everything when it comes to spider mites. The various sprays do work but if you have a larger garden it is really hard to treat every plant and be successful. My latest experiment was the most successful of all. I bought a Big Blue 8 ozone generator and after my last crop I cleaned the entire room with bleach (which I had done numerous times before but the mites always came back) after cleaning with the bleach I took all my plants out of the room and turned on the Big Blue for 48 hours full blast. I have been through two complete grows since then and have not had one spider mite show up in my room. This method works great but you must use caution when using the ozone, it can be hazardous to your health if not used properly. If you have been in a battle with spider mites and you are running a fairly large room I would highly recommend this method of complete elimination. P.S. make sure all of your plants are out of the room before using ozone as it will kill your plants.

Hot shot "no pest strips". I keep them in my veg room and flower tent at all times. Put a couple of them in and turn off all ventilation during lights off for 3 "nights". That worked for me. I haven't had any since I have started leaving them full time for maintenance. Even in late flower it is safe. Does not hurt the finished product at all, no taste no smell no problems no spider F'n mites
Hope this helps.

Spider mites:


Spider mites are by far the worst pest to have, because they are the hardest to kill and can literally kill any plant. They are by far more active in warmer climates than cold ones, they also suck sup from the leaves leaving tiny white spots on the leaves from where they suck on. The damage they do is just like thrips, but with spider mites they pierce the surface of the leaves and can show tiny holes or white speckling damage, unlike with thirps they eat the surface of the chlorophyll. You can tell when you have infestation of spider mites , because you will have distorted growth, shortened internodes and petioles.


When you have bad infestation you will see webbing with larva in them. You get spider mites from either store bought soil mostly when your soil is not sterilized. Most brands do not state weather or not they are, chances are if you buy cheap soil, you have a less likely chance of the soil being sterile.Also, bringing outdoor plants indoors, or getting plants from someone else who was infected with spidermites.
Spider mites live on the plant itself and are under the leaves most of the time and are usually are so tiny you can’t see them with the naked eye. In order to get rid of spider mites one of the best ways to start to get rid of them is to use NO-Pest strips.NO-Pest strips work well and should always be used with other methods. Neem oil helps get rid of them as well. Also by raising the humidity in your grow room a lot will kill the spider mites off, by them absorbing to much humidity and will burst. You can use soap solution like Safer Insecticidal Soap to get rid of most aphid problems. Use some tobacco juice and chili pepper powder added to this for mites. (see below how to make tabacco juice)
Pyrethrum should only be used in extreme circumstances directly on plants, It starts to breaks down around a week and is easily washed away with clear water or. If your plants are in flowering and you have spider mites, using safer chemicals is your best bet. The tobacco and pepper soap solution works well and should be used daily, spraying on the underside and top leaves and later the whole plant. Since spider mites are very residual to common products, you have to find or try any number of ones untill you get rid of them. make absolutly sure you retreat as stated, other wise you will get resistant spidermites and then you have a bigger battle on your hands.Also do not allow pets that go outside alot to be around indoor plants,mites have been known to be carried in from pets to plants. PLEASE NOTE, below are ways to get rid of spider mites, but no 2 mite infestations are identical, you almost always have to use different products to get rid of them, also make a habit to check for at least a whole month after thinking you got rid of them, that way your chances of the spider mites that became resistant breeding and then having a bigger problem. Make sure you spray your plant down very good and enough and on time.
