    They will farm aphids which will eat your crop and foster mold.

    Ants are easy trap them inside and spray insecticide outside along your foundation. You can get traps and insecticide at garden shops.

    I've never dealt with mites, I do keep" zero tolerance" natural insecticide on hand just in case. If that won't work I'd toss my plants, at least that's my plan.
