I have spider mites on my dahlias and I need to get rid of them! I have just tried a solution of soap and water, but if that doesn't work I would appreciate any advice on what has worked well for others. Thanks, Laura

So. Cal.
I think you are on the right track with your treatment. I believe it will take several treatments often to really get rid of them. Check here:
