Clover mites are among the common pests that can cause problems for NJ homeowners in late summer and early fall.

What Are Clover Mites?

Clover mites are tiny red pests that you might see on the exterior of your home. During late summer and early fall, these mites gather on sunny areas of buildings and look for places to move indoors. You’re more likely to see them on the east, south and southwest sides of your home. Clover mites aren’t biters, and they won’t cause damage to your home. However, they can leave reddish stains on your carpets, furniture, walls and other surfaces if you crush them.
