How do I get rid of spider mites?


Does anyone know a good safe way to get rid of spider mites for good? Also prevention? I have a collection of young citrus tree plants and two of them only seem to attract the mites, they have had the problem twice. The mites had not spread to the other plants and I am so glad of that. I cut the two infected plants back the first time and used insecticidal soap and they came back very nicely. Yesterday the were fine and this afternoon they were full of the mites and webs! I had a garden bug killer and used that but I would like to prevent it from happening again. Odd it seems to only affect those two plants. Thanks
