What's funny is I just
saw this on Dateline NBC last night. Farmer's use these preditory mites

Predatiory mites known as 'persimilis' are extremely effective. I
had the worst outbreak of spider mites I have ever seen in my shadehouse,
nursery stock and garden last (Aust) summer and they cleared up the lot in a
few weeks. I still haven't seen a single spider mite after 5 months.
In terms of safety, effort, result and cost they are far more
effective than any spray!
