I have two fava bean plants in a green house which adjoins and direction opens onto our apartment which we "inherited" with the apartment. I'd love to keep them, except that they are very badly infested with spider mites. I pulled several dead plants which died probably from a combo of mites and neglect while we moved. I've cut back about 1/3-1/2 of both of these plants because the branches were dead from the infestation I think. I worry the plants don't have enough vigor left to bother dealing with the spider mites, and I want to get some other things going in there without spidermites.
Does it make more sense to pull everything, leave it empty for a bit, and hope the spidermites go elsewhere (not into the outdoor garden please!! I haven't seen any outside) or into my houseplants in the house proper, and then plant it up again, or try to treat it? And how? It's not totally waterproof between the greenhouse and our house, and I don't know that the hose would reach (we water with a can), so I'm not sure about spraying it down. Thanks!
