Spider Mites on my indoor hot pepper plants
I haven't been paying enough attention to my pepper plants - yesterday I looked closely and found spider mites on two of the plants. I went over the leaves and tried to wipe off all of the leaves and get rid of the webs. I've searched the boards here and read about natural predators and Avid. Avid is out of my price range. I live in an apartment with cats and introducing more bugs really isn't something I want to do. Can I get rid of the spider mites just by continuing to spray the leaves and going over the plant? Do I need to worry about spider mites infesting any new plants I start inside? I would rather get rid of the two pepper plants than risk every plant I start inside. I appreciate any ideas. Thanks!
