Mite Crawling On Leaf

What do clover mites look like?

Clover mites are tiny pests that belong to the arachnid family. Adults are about the size of a pin-head with an oval-shaped body. Their body is usually reddish-brown in color, but may also be brown or green depending on the species and their diet. Like all arachnids, clover mite adults have eight legs with their front two legs being much larger in size than the rest. Clover mites are landscape pests that use their specialized mouth parts to feed on the juices of clover, grasses, and other lawn plants.

    The clover mite is a very common landscaping pest. It may be necessary to put a home pest control program into place in order to protect your property and home from clover mites and other common pests. The following tips can help prevent problems with clover mites in and around your South Carolina home:

    Inspect your home’s foundation and exterior walls. Caulk any small crack or crevice you discover to prevent clover mites from getting into your home.

    • Place weather-stripping around windows and doors.
    • Place door sweeps on all exterior doors.
    • Seal spaces around utilities entering into your home.
    • Cut weeds and overgrown vegetation away from your home’s foundation.
    • Create an 18-20 inch crushed stone barrier between soil and grass and your home’s foundation.

  • Where are clover mites found?
    In the spring, newly hatched clover mites emerge from their overwintering spots. Typically, during the winter months they remain dormant in soil located in the cracks of sidewalks or next to foundations. They also over-winter behind tree bark. Clover mites then gather together and are drawn to the warm, sunny sides of homes and other structures. As they move along a home’s exterior walls, they find their way inside through small openings. Clover mites are often seen inside a home gathered together on window sills.
  • Are clover mites dangerous?
    Clover mites are annoying pests, especially when inside of your home, but they are not dangerous pests. The biggest problem that clover mites cause for homeowners is creating unsightly red stains. Their small size allows them to become crushed and leave behind red stains on rugs, walls, curtains, and upholstered furniture.
