Red spider mites

I have a retaining wall that runs the length of my backyard. Along one side of it runs my garden and grass lines the other side. I have observed tiny red spider mites along it for the past two summers but I didn't think they were doing any damage to my garden. However, I have been noticing them all over my recent plantings this season. We have also been noticing our grass is dying all along the wall. I thought it was just a water problem but I'm wondering if its the mites. How do I treat for them?

blueberries leaves turning red

We just planted blueberry bushes. We read up, got acidic fertilizer, planted so deep, so wide apart, have been keeping soil extra moist. The leaves on all but one bush are turning red in color; almost as if it was fall time. Why? Is the soil "too acidic"? Please give some suggestion. We spent a little more than usual on these plants, and are looking forward to blueberries!!
