I have used spinosad for leaf miner.  Its standard treatment on citrus for leaf miners.  The bottles says it kills mites on contact.

"Spinosad products can be used directly to kill spider mites on contact, but can also be used when watering plants to systemically kill spider mites via the roots."

So that damage might have been sunburn after all, or a mix of spider mite damage and sunburn.  After a nice hot day yesterday I noticed a few of my trees had obvious sunburn damage, even ones that have had no spider mites.  Luckily the last of my fogger parts arrived today so I can set this up before everything cooks.
