An indoor/outdoor plan of attack controls clover mites. Outdoors, by the beginning of May, the soil needs to be bare from the foundation walls out five feet. During the first week of May, pesticides then are applied onto the soil and the foundation walls. The applications are one foot out from the foundation walls, and over the wall surface from the ground up two feet. A particularly effective pesticide of low toxicity is permethrin.

Indoors, entry points such as cracks, crevices and fissures need to be identified and sealed. Then aerosol sprays may be used. The sprays need to be directed at the entry points, regardless of whether they're sealed or unsealed. Any clover mites on the floor need to be vacuumed, and the bag disposed of. This way of scooping up specimens minimizes the red smears and stains that their stressed body parts leave.

Can planting a clover lawn attract clover mites?

Yes, planting a clover lawn can attract clover mites. The arachnids in question (Bryobia praetiosa Koch) feed upon clovers and grasses.

Which insects eat clover mites?

Big eyed bugs [Geocoris pallens and Geocorcis punctipes], minute pirate bugs [Orius tristicolor], and predatory mites [Phytoseiulus persimilis] eat clover mites [Bryobia praetiosa]. Their use in the clover mite stricken landscape is considered a natural, biological control. Other organic ways of coping with clover mite pests include planting choices and pesticides. Planting choices center on growing what clover mites don't like: arborvitae, chrysanthemum, geranium, petunia, rose, salvia, yew, and zinnia. Pesticides center on the use of horticultural oil against the eggs, and of insecticidal soap against other stages in the clover mite life cycle.

How long do clover mites live indoors?

A week to several months is the length of time that clover mites live indoors. The range occurs because of clover mite life cycles and natural histories and because of environmental conditions, such as occupant hostility or tolerance, predatory presences, and temperature levels. The arachnids in question (Bryobia praetiosa) pass through each of five stages, from eggs through larvae and two nymphal phases to adulthood, within a month for clover mites hatched between spring and fall.

What are the little red bugs about the size of a pinhead mostly seen on concrete or cement?

Clover mitesI have these, too. When I was a kid we used to call them "bloodsuckers," since when smooshed, they left what appeared to be a smear of human blood. From what I've read, they are actually clover mites, and are harmless to humans. They like the concrete because it's warm, and they seek out warm conditions, swarming all over in spring to early summer. They are in my house too, they call them red spider mites. They like warm weather and don't bite people only plants.
