How do I eradicate mites once and for all??

so this plant has been thriving and what not but I’m not kidding this is the 3rd freaking time I’ve spotted a tiny spider or two crawling around in the same exact spot by the root. I’ve treated with neem, insecticide for mites, Natria Plant insecticide & IDK WHY THESE RASCALS KEEP COMING BACK! I haven’t spotted them on any other plant at this time but will do anything at this point just to prevent and keep them away as well as prevent further plant damage. Do I just completely repot with new soil?? Plz help! #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #helpneeded #PlantAddict

I had this problem too this is what you need to do. To use, I mix a neem oil with water and dish soap which acts as an emulsifier. Here’s the proper way to mix and apply neem oil:

Mix 1 tablespoon of neem oil in 10 oz of water.
Add a few drops of dish soap.
Shake well before spraying on affected plants.
Spray the whole plant well.
Make sure to apply the solution to both sides of the leaves and plant stems as well.
Repeat the treatment twice a week until the issue is gone.
Wow, thank you so much!!!! Will do!!
