Use the hose to spray vines off in the early mornings. It helps get rid of pests without having to use chemicals.

I'm in Florida and I've found this to be one of the best methods of keeping spider mites away from my Brugmansias and Hibiscus.

I do always spray in the mornings, or as early in the day as I think of it so that the leaves have a chance to dry off before nightfall. We also have every fungus known to man floating around in the air here, so wet leaves and warm nights are an engraved invitation.
