Possible spider mites?

I think that my lovely air plants have spider mites, I am still in denial. How do I treat air plants for spider mites? I do have a pesticide spray that I am using on my alocaisa ( which I am 100% sure has some kind of pest). PleasePlese help!! #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #PlantTherapy #airplants #PestControl #pestID #PlantCorner

I’m constantly battling them and currently using a 1:4 mix of isopropyl:water + neem and a little dish soap. Spray with this thing, sit for an hour and then rinse. I did this for about 10 days and it worked.
I’ve had spider mites, you should be able to see them on your plants. They are really really small but if you really concentrate in luck, you should be able to see them moving around. They are little tannish orange dots. I got rid of mine with water and a little dish soap spray. They also hate humidity so make sure you missed frequently or keep them in water like it looks like you’re doing! Hope this helps! οΏΌ
