Getting Rid of Spider Mites

Is there a non-toxic method of getting rid of spider mites on my bird's nest plant?

Hi Judy, If you still need a fix for mites, try this. In a clean spray bottle, mix 5ozs. of isopropyl rubbing alcohol with 5ozs. of water. Add 1/8 tsp. of liquid soap (not detergent). Spray all leaves, stems, soil and underside of foliage. Reapply if necessary. It's always worked for me with plants. Good luck!
