Biology of the Clover Mite

close up of the Clover Mite

The full-grown Clover Mite is slightly smaller than a pin head and has a bright reddish to reddish-brown body. Clover Mites appear as dark red specks crawling around sidings, doors, windows, drapes, curtains and furniture. When crushed, Clover Mites will appear red and will cause a stain. This is not blood but their coloration. The Clover Mite is not an insect but is a relative of spiders and ticks, an arachnid. They occur in large numbers and live in turf grass and feed on plant fluids. They do not bite people or animals.

Sometimes in the spring their populations increase rapidly and mites leave the turf grass and climb on houses, and enter through windows. They are a nuisance because large numbers of them often invade homes. Hot dry weather in the spring and early summer will cause Clover Mites to migrate indoors. In the fall, the mites may also migrate indoors seeking shelter from low winter temperatures. In attempting to remove the mites, homeowners often crush them, leaving red stains on furniture and drapes. Mite invasions are most common from vigorously-growing lawns and other vegetation surrounding homes, especially if shrubs are close to or touching the walls.

Our Industry Leading Clover Mite Extermination Method

Our Treatment Solves Problems Cause By Clover Mites

Clover Mites are so small that they can fit into the tiniest gaps and cracks, and it is impossible to seal up a home to stop their entry completely. They will hide in wall voids or other hidden areas where it can be challenging to get to the source. EnviroPest will also assist in inspecting gaps or cracks in and around your foundation(s) that allow Clover Mites’ entry. It is even beneficial to replace or repair weather stripping around windows, doors, and other entry points.

  • The company should have a staff entomologist or access to one.
  • Technicians should have experience with Clover Mite pest control.

How Serious Are Clover Mites? Are They Dangerous?

Although Clover Mites do not bite and do not cause disease or health issues among humans, they can cause problems in people’s homes or buildings throughout New York State.

Do Clover Mites Cause Damage?

When Clover Mites are crushed, they will leave a red stain on any surface. With millions of them inside, staining can occur on couches, chairs, drapes, windows, and anything throughout the house. They are a real nuisance invader.

How Did I Get Clover Mites?

Specific conditions around a home invite Clover Mites to infest and enter your property. Removing these conditions will be the first step to long term prevention. We can help identify weeds, tall grass, and other vegetation that are welcoming to these pests. Keep all of these ornamentals at least two feet from the foundation.  Clover Mites will thrive in mulch. It is recommended to replace much with crushed rock or pea gravel. Replacing mulch will eliminate the high moisture that causes these large infestations.

Should We Apply Pesticide for Clover Mites?

Clover Mites are challenging to control. Household chemicals or over the counter products homeowners often apply will usually result in the mites coming back in a few days. The benefit of having a professional application by a professional Clover Mites exterminator is a guaranteed elimination. Although it may take multiple applications, a licensed company can safely and effectively handle the issue with the right products.

How Does EnviroPest Specifically Handle Clover Mites?

EnviroPest is trained to manage Clover Mites:

  • Inspection – We will inspect and treat not only the areas of infestation but also the areas that are considered high risk areas within a home. The more extensive and detailed the treatment the more effective.
  • Prevention – Humidity should be reduced if possible in the high risk areas and any building materials. Moisture should be removed from any area containing highly conducive areas that could create areas of harborage. We can help identify these areas with our clients as we walk through the property.
  • Guarantee – We are happy to check after a period of time on whether the problems have been resolved. Areas should be checked regularly considering this issue takes a while to occur and become visible it also should be guaranteed by a proper company after you treat the infestation.
