hey usually prefer clovers and lawn grasses but will also feed on certain ornamental shrubs and trees. The abundance of soil nutrients appears to be linked to clover mite populations. Greater populations of clover mites are often associated with newly established lawns or old lawns that have been heavily fertilized.

  • They crawl into cracks around windows or in foundation walls and under siding, shingles, or shakes. This activity often leads many of the mites into houses where they can be seen on window sills, walls, tables, etc.—often in great numbers. But whether indoors or out, most of the mites will congregate on the sunny side of the house.
  • Cold weather tends to slow down or stop the mites' activity, which resumes again in the spring; however, on especially sunny days, they may be seen even in the winter. With the advent of warm weather, the mites become active again and ultimately return to the lawns to feed

They feed primarily on the lawn where they suck sap from grasses, clover, and other plants.

  • Clover mites actually do not damage a house, its furnishings, or even humans or animals. They feed primarily on the lawn where they suck sap from grasses, clover, and other plants. In the fall they sometimes gather in tremendous numbers on walls, windows, tree trunks, and other outside surfaces where they seek protected hiding places. They crawl into cracks around windows or in foundation walls and under siding, shingles, or shakes. This activity often leads many of the mites into houses where they can be seen on window sills, walls, tables, etc.—often in great numbers. But whether indoors or out, most of the mites will congregate on the sunny side of the house.
  • Clover mites do not bite people or pets and cannot cause damage to human structures but they can leave unsightly stains on light-colored walls, carpet, fabrics, or papers when crushed.
  • Cold weather tends to slow down or stop the mites' activity, which resumes again in the spring; however, on especially sunny days, they may be seen even in the winter. With the advent of warm weather, the mites become active again and ultimately return to the lawns to feed.
  • Mites in the house are very difficult to control with any of the chemicals that are safe to use in houses. Vacuuming or wiping them up with a damp cloth is probably the simplest way to clean them up.
  • Use a barrier of cultivated soil next to the foundation. Mites do not readily cross loose, clean cultivated soil; therefore, a band approximately 18–24 inches wide all around the house, kept free of grass, would be an excellent deterrent.
  • Flowerbeds planted with zinnia, marigold, salvia, rose, chrysanthemum and petunia, or shrubs such as barberry, juniper, spruce, arborvitae, and you make better barriers because these plants are not attractive to clover mites.
  • Exterior cracks around doors and windows or holes in the foundation should be caulked. In many instances, this will deter the migration of clover mites into the structure. If mites are still successful at entering the house, vacuuming will collect many of the mites around windowsills, walls and elsewhere without crushing them. Be sure to seal the vacuum bag before disposal
