I have enclosed a few pics of the hundreds of thousands what appear to be spider mites? that have infested our garden and are ravaging every bush,maple tree,etc that we have...of course with the pesticide ban now in effect we are limited to some products that we bought(Eco-Sense) to try and kill them...is there any other method of getting rid and destroying them that is more cost $$$$ efficient our backyard is 80 feet by 10 feet deep covered in these buggers....thanks for any help

I noticed today that one branch of my cherry tree looked exactly like your pic posted.

I sprayed some water & dish soap but forgot to check later to see what happened.

seems like the majority of them are on the trees and bushes not the plants....We ended up trimming back the rose-of-sharon that had them)in pics) we have been using a product called end-all that seems to be working

Try 3 parts water & 1 part dish soap and spray a section and see any results.
