Every time I see Fruit Salad a song plays in my mind. "Fruit Salad, yummy yummy. . My grandson loved to watch The Wiggles when he was a toddler. I heard that song a lot. Lol

Nope, we had them in Utah, too. But have you tried just rinsing the plants off with the hose every day for a few days? I have not had a single spider mite this year either. Just hosing off the plants regularly seems to break the life cycle. Got to be better for the plant than stripping off all the leaves in the middle of summer?

Here's an article on it:

I haven't had an infestation since I got them. I will get more every year for the next 3 years... Hopefully build up enough that they will want to stay. I do see some flying around in the back yard at night. i would like to see more.

I have some here in South Georgia. I see one every once in a while. Not as many as I would like. Might have to get some.

You talk of spraying plants with water to keep off spider mites, sure does not work here, my plants have been drowned at least three times with all the storms we are having and I have two plants that have them on three branches we are having so many storms and terrible downpours, water standing everywhere nowhere for it to go.
I have never seen my plants grow so fast, they are getting too tall to put under the table, and now I have too many again. I only had a couple, then friends on Facebook heard I gave mine all to my daughter last year when I was unable to take care of them and they have been sending me some, now I have 23 What will I do this fall? Sticking tongue out guess I will give them away for postage.
