What everyone is trying to tell you is that mites are not insects, therefore an insecticide won't work. Insecticidal soap, which is extremely mild for insects, therefore, will not work. You need a true miticide. You must kill the eggs on the leaves and in the soil. If you don't kill the eggs in the soil, the mites will keep regenerating.
