How do I treat red spider mites organically? I do not want to use chemicals.

Spider mites are best controlled with a daily blast of water from the hose. (Mites like dusty plants.) The humidity from the extra water also helps the plant. If possible, spray early in the morning, before the sun gets too hot. If that doesn't work, try an insecticidal soap. Good luck!
