Brownish looking spider like insects with six legs and 2 long antennae live in the creeping fig outside. They seem to have stunted its growth . When I water the plant they crawl up the wall. What could they be and what do I do about them? They are not like the spider mites I see on images. They are about half inch in size including legs. Tick like looking body. Thanks for your help

Your photo did not come through. I will be unable to identify the pest in question.

I can give your a few articles that will help though: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/natural-home-pesticides-organic-garden-pest-control.htm
