edit: I read in a forum that the things on the leafs are two spotted spider mites and that the things crawling on his thumbs are soil mites (a beneficial bug). IDK if the ones in the soil are soil mites or not.

first time I've seen someone recommend anything other than IMID

 

 

I'll start a list of some good resources here.

Has an alright identification area and also says good results from insecticidal soap

Unless you're willing to clone all your plants and kill all the ones in soil, you will never defeat them with organic growing. There's too many little air pockets in the soil and some always survive. They can reproduce asexually so it only takes one. Trust me on this... I am a very diligent person and I hit them every week with pesticides for months and they still have lingered on. The only other option is to switch to growing hydroponics, preferrably DWC, because then there's no air pockets for them to survive in, and you can dunk in soapy pesticide solution and slaughter them.
