As said, neem oil is an option to try. Additionally guy some live basil plants and put them in the pot. Basil is used as a natural deterrent against some sucking & biting insects. As well as ladybugs/ladybirds, deploying predator mites that will munch any mites that might be on the plant is another (semi-)natural method. At this point in flower, deploy ALL of them as you don't have much time to clear them before they must have been cleared for harvesting bug-free buds. As said, put it somewhere with a breeze as well as direct sunlight (bugs like still less-light conditions a lot). Good luck!

I had problems too you can check my NL grow. Buy some Neem oil, mix it with water and a drop of soap and spray it on the plant twice per week. You won’t see anymore bugs. :v::skin-tone-2:

As everyone has stated use neem oil and spray directly onto the leaves. Be sure to follow the products instructions and make sure to not get any on the flowering sights. Most local hydroponic stores will carry neem oil and is a good natural way of deterring pests. Good luck!

Hi there! Spraying neem oil at night onto (and below) the leaves will kill those bastards. Atomizing essential oils in the air will help to keep them away. I use a DIY mix of LemonGrass, Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Lavender from a friend who work in a fragrance lab. I feel like this really helps, but I'm indoor, I'm not sure an atomizer would be efficient outdoor. Finally as mentioned by our friend @DudeGrowsWeed, ladybugs can do the job for you. As for prevention, you can use a physical barrier / ground cover such as "SoilCover", "WeedBarrierFabric", "DiatomaceousEarth". Make sure your plants get a continuous cool breeze, spider mites do love hot weather and stagnant air. Hope this helps, keep us up-to-date and good luck with this invasion.

Get some Neem oil and insecticidal soap. Rule of thumb, if you catch 1 bug, then there are a dozen more. Catch them now, in full flower it will be too late.

Looks like spider mites to me. I’d try spraying with neem oil. You could also bring some ladybugs into the grow, they will eat the spider mites and leave your plant alone. Good luck!
