Yes, looks like spider mites, Capt Jacks every 4-5 days for a few weeks to make sure they are gone.

This is a really bad infestation, I would recommend continuing treatment beyond that timeframe. To be safe. Those things are resilient!

I cannot find Captain Jacks every place seems to be sold out can I use
Ortho Bug B Gon ECO Ready-To-Use 1L Insecticide

I would not use that Ortho stuff, it’s pyrethrin based, hate that stuff, specially in flowering, look for something spinosad based like Monterey Garden Insect Spray or something like it if no Capt Jacks.

safers soap? Whatever you use, make sure it deals with the insect you wish to eliminate. When the grow is done, remove everything from the grow room and clean it THOROUGHLY with 2 percent bleach and water. Clean your light and everything that goes back in the room. Do NOT reuse the soil.
Once then room is clean, you need to figure out how the heck are these little bastards getting in my room? And put a stop to it! Your room should be like a clean room in a hospital. You should not do your outside yard work and go look at your plant in the same clothes! Thats a huge friken no no. Do not let pets get in there for the same reason. Do NOT allow plant material from other growers into your room without spraying the shit out of them with safers soap for at least 2 weeks of quarantine! Do not let anything in there that could harbor the enemy because once they breach the wire your defenses are down.
You know its kinda funny, many people say… I dont wanna grow weed outdoors because of the pests, but nature has a way if balancing the pest thing out, and when it fails to do so we do the same as an indoor grower. However, when pests get into a grow room, it can be a super challenging time to get them out! They dont have natural predators. I have been finding wings on my pot leaves… seems the hornets and wasps are murdering everything that moves in my greenhouse! In the past I was killing wasps, now I see that they are incredibly agressive towards flying insects.

Yeah, you don’t want to smoke pyrethrin.

Order Captain Jack’s from Amazon if you have to.
