    Neem Oil spray.

    That's what I use on my Cephs and other plants.

    Mites hate it. Chewing insects too.

    Commercial product.

    Spider mites aren't much bigger than a speck of dust so your photos show nothing in regards to an infestation.

    Is Neem oil safe for Drosera and Dionea too? I've been looking for a good insecticide that won't kill my plants for a while.

    (Might be a moot point, I flooded the infested Drosera pot and the bugs all jumped out -- and onto my all-too-happy to see them adult Droseras and Ping. )
