One of the ways I have always tested for spider mites is the "white paper slap & smear test". Take a flat piece of white paper, or any flat white surface that you can hold, and put it under the leaf of the plant and slap the leaf. Run you hand over the white surface and look for little red streaks, if you see any then you have spider mites. This is a helpful test if the infestation is fairly new and there isn't noticable webbing like you have on your plant Anton.
