[Market-farming] Spider Mites

With the hot, dry, dusty conditions in Texas I'm seeing
spider mites on portions of tomato fields.

Curiously, they get started on on caged rather than stake-and-weave.

Anybody have experience suppressing them with organic
allowed materials?

Will also be looking into beneficial insects and insectary habitat,
but need something quicker for now.

Oh yeah, along with these dry conditions, been seeing gigantic
  "dirt devils" this year.
