They like low humidity. That is one of the main reasons they build up.
There are chemical miticides if he is not the "organic" type.

Anyone have a good method for dealing with spider mites? The keep
popping up
in my friend’s greenhouse. They really seem to like Amorphophallus,
Xanthosoma, Alocasia, and Colocasia, ignoring everything else. He has
using neem oil, but it seems to kill off leaves. He went to a weaker
concentration, which knocks down the mites immediately and saves the
but even after spraying twice a day for two weeks, they just pop right
up. They appear to be the two-spotted spider mite.

Thank you in advance,
