What Are Those Tiny Red Bugs?

As fall draws closer, many pests including rodents and insects will start searching for shelter that will protect them from the cold winter weather.

In Bristol and around Anne Arundel County, one such pest is the clover mite; clover mites are tiny red bugs that are about the size of a pinhead they are bright red in color and have long front legs.

During the spring and fall you are likely to see them in and around your home and they can become quite a nuisance.


Bristol Pest Control Pros On Clover Mites

Clover mites are drawn to the sunny exterior of buildings and homes during the fall; they will then find their way into your home through cracks around windows, doors, and in foundations.

Once they get inside your home you will find them on your windows, window sills, and walls. While they are not dangerous to you they can cause damage to your property, if they are smashed or squished clover mites will stain walls, carpets, and the upholstery on your furniture.


Pest Prevention Tips To Keep Out Clover Mites

At American Pest, we realize the best way to avoid an infestation of any type of pest is to keep them out in the first place. Pest-proofing is something that any homeowner can do and our Bristol exterminators share a few pest prevention tips that will help you keep clover mites, spiders and ants out as well as other insects and rodents.

  • Eliminate easy access to your home. This means sealing any cracks, gaps or openings on the exterior of your home.
  • Create a barrier. Now, we don’t mean dig a moat around your house but rather consider installing a gravel or crushed rock around the perimeter of the dwelling instead of allowing grass or mulch to touch the exterior of your home.
  • Replace or repair screens. Inspect screens covering your doors and windows. If there are any tears or rips you should repair or replace those screens.
  • Remove moisture. Inside your home pests can often be drawn to moist areas so leaky pipes and faucets should be repaired and de-humidifiers should be used in basements.
  • Take the trash out. Empty trash receptacles often and do not store trash cans close to the exterior of the house.
  • Say goodbye to clutter. Organizing your closets, attic and other storage areas will not only leave you feeling satisfied at a job well done, it will help eliminate harborages for insects and rodents.

 I called American Pest because of an ant problem but they wound up treating so much more. Great conversation with the main office and the tech who came to the house was incredibly punctual, courteous, extremely knowledgeable/excited about his work. Happy to say I no longer share the house with ants or any other insects!
