when you harvest the plants, remove the fan leaves, get rid of them and hang the plants upside down on lines.

 

leave an extra bit of a stem at the top.

 

the spidermites will realise their food source is dying and drying, and will move to the top, which is now the bottom of the stems as they are upside down.

 

they are trying to catch the breeze and go to new places to live and feed, that is their natural instinct.

 

then when you see them at the tops, hold a bag under the end of the stems, and hold the plants sideways, then cut off the ends with the mites with pruning shears into the bags.

 

this will get rid of most of them at the end

@triffed Have you looked into bug bombs? 

 

I cant give you a personal exp as I have never used them, but I'm 99% sure there is quite a few products been released in the last few years, I know a few work really well but can be a bit dangerous to use, I think it depends on how much you want to spend and how willing you are to get the job done.

 

But besides that, chop as early as possible, keep hovering, wiping, defoliating as much as possible. When you do harvest cut as much leaf etc off as you can and bin it as you go. When you hang your buds try to get the temps around 15C, apparently the adults jump ship as the buds dry, from what I've read the colder you go the more likely they are to leave the buds, although obviously the colder you go the riskier it is with rot.

 

Have a little look into the foggers, I'm almost certain there are ones that can kill spider mites on contact and are safe to use in flower.

Flying Skull Nuke Em

Its active ingredients Yeast and citric acid safe to use in flower and even on harvested buds.

Its effective against a whole range of pests, Spider mites included. not cheap thou its like £45 and with a week to go maybe its just best to ride it out but if you want to take some sort of action its an option.
