  RE: *&*(^%$## Spider Mites!!

Those mites sap a plant fast, especially in DRY heat. I use an indoor
insecticide made by Raid, which works quickly on spider mites. Plus,
increase the humidity with a gravel tray filled with some water under your
plants or a humidifier in the room, close to the plants. Mites don't do as
well with higher humidity. Test the spray on a plant first and see if there
is any adverse reaction for a day or two, but I have had no problems. Read
the label.
