"Are you ready for clover mite season? No, we are not talking about getting into your camouflage gear, strapping on your rifle, and sitting for hours in the woods waiting for a clover mite to step out so you can tag it. We are talking about the season when clover mites suddenly appear, seemingly out of nowhere, to plague you in your home. We are talking about spring."
"Clover mites are one of the most common pests in and around Aiken, South Carolina. They are closely related to ticks, but thankfully they feed on and damage grass, plants, and landscapes instead of blood. Oftentimes, they gather in massive numbers, which can actually be intimidating."
"Clover mites are among the smallest pests that frequent our homes. They’re about the size of the head of a pin, which is only 1/30th of an inch in length. They’re reddish brown and have eight legs, making them a member of the arachnid family. They move slowly, but they can invade homes in large numbers."
"Clover mites are insects that usually feed on plants outside, but sometimes, they find their way inside. In fact, since the end of World War II these tiny creatures have become much more common as a home-invading pest and, at times, will invade homes by the thousands."
