Peas infested with spider mites

Pea    None Given

Many of my plants have been infested by spider mites! How can I save my greenhouse from this?

I have always had good success with an application of insecticidal soaps containing neem. You must be sure to get to all parts of the plant. Mites like to hide out in leaf buds which can make them tricky to eradicate completely. A reapplication may be required if numbers begin to build again and you are still seeing damage. Most plants will tolerate the damage but the plants are not very nice to look at
