Red spider mites

From: Mark Aronson <mark.aronson>

We have a situation in our ancient art gallery involving an annual
summer invasion of red spider mites.  The gallery is on the ground
floor of our building where red spider mites appear crawling over
our white marble (and other) portrait busts.  I assume they find the
pedestals, assume they are tree trunks and climb to the top.  Some
of our esteemed museum visitors have recently found it fun to smush
'em on the surface of the white marble portrait busts. Any
suggestions on controlling these animals would be appreciated.
