Soapy water for indoor lemon with spider mites?

13 years ago

I soaked my meyer lemon with half a teaspoon to 3 cups of water two days ago both sides of leaves, and it is still crawling.

I planned to spray it several times to get subsequent hatching eggs.

Is there a better method? I know spider mites can get terrible (this plant is trashed!) and don't want them spreading throughout the other houseplants.

Any ideas appreciated.
