Aphid and Spider Mite Infested Leaves Removed

There was a leaf that just did not look right randomly on the plant as it had some slight discoloration. It was an older leaf which is in part expected but making my way to the leaf and inspecting the underside there was a hot spot of both aphids and two-spotter spider mites.

There are mostly aphids in the image, but circled in green is a small concentration of about seven two-spotted spider mites. This shows just how small these are and when there is only a few of them spaced out it can be very hard to initially detect.
