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 mites are actually on the plants, try an insecticidal soap. Good luck!
