    Default Spider mite in greenhouse

    Got an infestation on beans and aubergine of red spider mite. Shall I remove all infested areas? I have begun taking leaves off but things are starting to look bare
    Whatís best?

    I always get spider mite on cucumber plants I grow in my house,I donít have a greenhouse. They donít affect any of my plants outside so put the plant outside if you can & spray both sides of the leaves with soapy water to try & keep the plants growing. Beans are a bit hard to move,if you removed the plants that are infested,would they begin to infest another plant? You might be better off spraying daily & just keeping the numbers down,it does disrupt them..

    There is a biological control.
