How do I keep spider mites away from my houseplants?
I always get spider mites on my houseplants at this time of year. Is there an effective way to keep these pests away from my houseplants?

Spider mites don't like high humidity but thrive when the air is warm and dry. To prevent them, provide a moister atmosphere for your plants. This might mean giving the plants a shower once or twice a week. To combat the pests, use insecticidal soap or a houseplant insecticide that specifically says it will kill spider mites. Spray the upper and lower surfaces of the leaves, and repeat the spray according to label directions.
