Ya we call spider mites the Borg they invest and multiple quickly. There are some great organic methods to get rid of them there is a cayenne pepper spray you can use garlic spray works too. But when planting outdoors companion planting is a great way to keep them off your plant to begin with chives onions garlic dill all work great when a spider mite comes swinging in the smell of these plants will drive them away they will not want to hang around and lay eggs. Companion planting is a great tool outdoors with pests and other plant help health and growth I'll grow chives and clover in my pots with my plants the chives for bugs and the clover pulls nitrogen from the air and fixates in the and other plants will use that up double bonus.
