They do not strip leaves but may cause leaves to drop, as they suck out all the juices from the plant. Here is more info on red spider mites: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/red-spider-mites.htm I would recommend spraying the plant with neem oil. We have found it to be very effective against pests and it is safe for humans and pets. plus it will not kill beneficial bugs.
