Erythrina - Spider Mite?

My Erythrina Crista Galli has a problem.
About a month ago the leaves started turning yellow & I assumed that the nights were getting a little cold for it & bought in. They have now dropped off.
If you look at the pics there is this very fine cobweb on it. Is this the red spider mite which I have heard of, or do I have another problem?

This is definitely red spider mite. Incidentally, this plant is really attractive and I have grown it from seed before. Spray the mites!
