Are there any pests common to the Dwarf Alberta Spruce? If there are, what are they and how would one get rid of them?

I'm afraid all spruces are susceptible to spider mite infestations. You can discourage the pests if you periodically hose your spruce's down. Spider mites like dry conditions and washing them off will convince them to find another home.
