When Are Clover Mites Most Active In New Jersey?

Most clover mites only live for a few weeks, and the few weeks they prefer to live usually fall within the months that have moderate temperatures. These arachnids don't like to be too cold or too hot; they also have a preference for seasons of the year when there is a lot of precipitation, so spring and fall in New Jersey are when we see these little red bugs the most.

Here are a few things you should know about clover mites

Clover mites can stain your stuff
One reason you may be concerned about clover mites is that they can stain clothing and furniture. In some cases, these red stains can be washed out. In others, they can't. So it is best not to have these bugs invading your home or covering your pool!

Clover mites are often a warning sign
These insects are drawn to areas of moisture, and the presence of moisture can bring them into locations in a home where there is moisture damage. While clover mites aren't dangerous, mold and other moisture damage issues can be dangerous. Take the appearance of red bugs as a warning sign to have a detailed inspection conducted by a carpenter.

Clover mites aren't dangerous
These bugs aren't going to bite you; they bite plants, so unless you're a plant, you don't have anything to worry about. There are, however, some reports from residents that clover mites are biting them. If someone tells you that these bugs bite, assure them that they don't and that people who think they're getting bitten by these little red bugs are probably having a minor skin irritation due to an allergic reaction to them. If you're dealing with this, we can help you eliminate those bugs and keep them out of your home so you don't continue to suffer from rashes.

Now that you know what you're dealing with, you may be wondering how to get rid of clover mites on your own. It is always best to have a licensed pest professional take care of pest problems - even problems that seem harmless. It is important to correctly identify the pests you're dealing with, using proper treatments to eliminate them with as little pest control product as possible, and secure help with exclusion so more little red bugs don't simply replace the ones you've removed.
