I have spider mites on 90% of my phlox. Although they don't die, the plants are stunted and ugly. I thought spider mites were houseplant bugs? Anybody have this problem and find a solution?

Not on Phlox but plenty of years on Echinacea. Try Neem Oil which helps but if very bad you could use BioAdvanced Insect, Disease & Mite Control
