    Thank you all so much for the insight and ideas. I will probably try a little bit of all the techniques listed here.

    Just whatever it takes to get these buggers from killing my glabrata!

    I have used neem oil on my cephs in the past and they came out of it pretty well. Although, I did trim it back all the way to the root and allowed it to grow back. But the neem did take care of the mites.

    cutting off the food source for the mites is more likely what got rid of them.
    Neem only kills with a smothering agent (oil). Once it dries, it is no longer effective for the new hatchlings that are surely present.
    Avid, for example is a contact killer as well as a short term (2-3 weeks) larvae killer, as it is translaminar, and resides within the upper layers of plant tissue. Any bug that chews the plant within that time will die as well, thus breaking the life cycle/chain of the mites.
    Mites are as tenacious as they are damaging.
