Late Flower Mites I be Over Reacting!?

I am doing a Canna/Perlite Hempy. I'm probably 8 or 9 weeks in flowering an Sativa Hybrid bagseed Jesus OG supposedly. Anyway, I started flushing a week and a half ago, and didn't water yesterday in prep to put it in dark last night to start 36 - 48hr darkness before harvest. Trich's were primarily cloudy, some clear, handful amber. Anyway, read some more threads on when to harvest and got second thoughts, and figured it could go probably go another 2 week or so. So I took it out of darkness after 14hrs and hit it with MaxiBloom ~1/2 tsp per gal. Later, I was doing a little visit and noticed little white dots on leaves! Fuck yeah....freaking spider mites, not 3hrs after I just nuted them. (Yep, my bad, should have prevented better, 1st infestation.) So, I'm researching various Forums trying to find a solution this late in flowering, AND right after I just fed them.


First, I just removed them from my tent and put them outside on the back porch in the dark with 100% Humidity right now. I plan on leaving them outside overnight. Was this a mistake? Am I inviting more critters? Probably should have done that in hindsight, that was my over reaction. Hope I don't cause bud rot because of 1 night in high humidity.


So, I think these are my limited options and I don't really like any of them.
1) Just spray them with a H2O2 and water solution, maybe with ISO, Dawn Ultra and just hold them off as long as I can while re-flushing again? And harvest after a week?
2) Purchase an off the shelf product. SNS-207, Onyx, whatever else, but fight and let them mature for the full 2-3 weeks.
3) I have small perpetual going. No Pest Strip them and just let do their thing harvest whenever they are fully mature.


Other suggestions?

I considered using them but read the warning on the label and decided to get rid of the fungus gnats a different way.

Get Mo has it correct.

Along with spraying everything down (after harvest) with water and isopropyl alcohol, you can pest strip the empty room, before your next grow.

That is what I do most times, just leave it in the room for a few days no plants, then bag it back up and move plants in.
