What Are These Tiny Red Bugs All Over My New Castle Home?
Advice From Moyer Pest Control
We get this question a lot. Usually, the answer is, "Those are clover mites." While there are other tiny red bugs you may find crawling around on your New Castle home, clover mites are bugs that will have you using words like "all over" my house. These little arachnids don't hang out by themselves. They're usually found in groups of hundreds and even thousands! While a single mite is only about 1mm in length, it is hard to miss when it is hanging out with a thousand close friends. Fortunately, clover mites aren't a threat to your well-being. They don't bite or sting the way chiggers do—these are tiny red bugs that are often mistaken for clover mites. And they don't have venom like spiders, which are a closer relative of clover mites. They're mostly just a nuisance. What do we mean by "mostly" just a nuisance? Here are a few things you should know.
