Subject: Spider Mites on Water Hyacynth

Hello,  I am overwintering some Water Hyacynths(almost 2-months and 
counting).  They are now covered with spider mites (must have had a 
few when I brought them in and have multiplied(under moist, warm, and 
humid conditions).  What would anyone suggest to get rid of the 
mites?  Would bleach dip work??  If so what was the bleach to water 
formula? Would pottasium permagenate solution work???  I thought 
rinsing them off well when I brought them inside would work but I 
thought wrong!!    Thanks Mike B.
