Hmm. Looks like there were some survivors. I'm not sure yet because I can't get a clear of one of the suspects. No evidence of webs, but I didn't see any when I first spotted the mites. I may need to repeat the dunk or invest in some Avid miticide.

Update: It seems like the mites were eradicated after all, unless they're really good at hiding. I'm using a hi-magnification machinist's visor to search for them but no sign of mites or any other pests. Looks like the 4-day dunk did the job. The Cape was mad for a few days but is very dewy again.
Thanks to all for the helpful advice!
P.s. I highly recommend getting a visor for inspecting your plants. You can get them pretty cheap at Harbor Freight.
