Spidermites don't make cocoons so I don't think that's what you are dealing with. You can physically remove the cocoons you see by peeling them off the leaves, or you can prune off the leaves with cocoons attached and toss them in the trash. The cocoons could contain insect or spider eggs so removing them will lower the population in the garden. Best wishes with your plants!
