At Richland Pest & Bee Control, we offer a variety of mite control services in Hartford, Waterbury, New Haven, and all surrounding areas in Connecticut, specializing in the treatment and extermination of clover mites.
Although clover mites are not harmful to humans, pets, furniture or buildings, they do attack grass, clover and more than 200 other types of plants found in or outside your home or business. Despite the harmless nature of clover mites, a clover mite infestation in your CT home can be a serious nuisance. As a business owner, the presence of clover mites in your building may — like any pest — cause you to lose customers.
Clover mites are slightly smaller than the size of a pinhead, with brownish-red bodies and long front legs. When crushed, clover mites will leave a red stain — this is actually their coloration, not blood.
Clover mites are most often found in or around structures with lush, fertilized lawns or landscaping (their food source), although they can also be found on the flat roofs of buildings, where moss grows. Popular hiding spots for clover mites include loose tree bark, foundation walls, siding, and window frames. These pests most often move indoors during spring (mulching season), early summer, and fall.
