Clover mites are long-legged, oval-shaped, red-brown predators

of alyssum, clover, daffodil, dandelion, lawn grass, ornamental

flowers, primrose, sage, shepherd's purse, and strawberry. The

arachnid species in question (Bryobia praetiosa) is

considered an indoor and outdoor pest. Outdoors, clover mites may

leave grass silver-colored and plants stippled while indoors they

release a red stain on sunlit surfaces when squashed or

threatened.
