Can’t get rid of these pests! Thought they were spider mites based off the eggs and fine webbing but I’ve bought insecticide for spider mites and followed all directions for months now and these won’t go away! Could they be another pest?? And if so how can I get rid of them?

Better to stay in your original topic.
Could be spider mites, but the picture isn't clear enough to see if it can be something else.
Let me repeat the question: what did you get to get rid of spider mites? You write you got an insecticide, but spider mites are not insects.
basically they are just little white looking spiders with white-ish eggs all over the leaves, and they leave fine webs.
Obviously this sounds like spider mites but nothing has worked like I said
First thing I used was an "insecticide" specifically for spider mites by GardenSafe and followed the directions and it never did seem to get rid of them
Second method I used that found across many videos from professional growers on youtube, etc. was just a water and dish detergent mix, and it still did not work
I am now on my third method of concentrate neem oil mixed with water, and it does not seem to be effective either. I have trialed with approximately 3-5 days between spraying it, and like I said followed all directions.I also make sure to soak all sides of the leaves and under them as well
It stays in in the sun throughout the day, I water whenever the soil gets dry, keep a humidity tray under it, and mist at least once throughout the day. I also live in the south so humidity is already pretty high
If it is full sun it should be fine, There is no need for a humidity tray if it has sufficient water at the roots. Hoe do you know they are pests? Just because they are on a plant does not make it a pest to get rid of. Red Spider Mites do not like high humidity, so if it is high then it may not be them
