The folling question was posted on the iCultivate Youube channel:

How do you control spider mites ? Here spiders are everywhere I'm so stressed out, I have quite a few indoor Yucca's humifier cannot keep up at the moment all though it has managed 65% 2 nights probably not good for Yucca's but not good either for spider mites.

Good question ?. Firstly, I would recommend not using most pesticides. If you want to go down the chemical pathway I would give Neem oil or an insecticidal oil a go. Basically, these oils suffocate insect and mite like pests. However, it is most important to isolate infected plants.

My preferred option would be to wash (under pressure) the plant down. This will need to be repeated multiple times until there is no evidence of the mites, but remember to keep them isolated from unaffected plants - take them outside or into a garage.

 

Hope this helps ?.
