Want to find a 4-leafed clover? Learn about the Clover Mites!

Clover_mite_Bryobia_praetiosa_with_sewing_needleFour-leafed clovers are associated with St. Patrick’s Day and are believed to bring good luck to the finder! However, there is another type of clover that you might not consider lucky. They are clover mites and they can spell disaster for a lawn!

What is a Clover Mite?

A clover mite is a common nuisance. A full-grown clover mite has a bright red or bright red-brown body, and they are typically only a little bit smaller than a pinhead. They often congregate in large numbers, and from far away, they look like tiny red specks. Clover mites can appear indoors, crawling along drapes, windows, curtains and solid articles of furniture. When they are crushed, they typically leave behind a red stain.

Clover Mite Habits

Clover mites are closely related to ticks and spiders, and they typically feed on clovers, grass and other leafy plants. They are known to crawl into crevices and cracks to lay their eggs and molt, and common hiding places include window frames and foundation walls. They do not typically damage furniture or buildings, but they can be harmful to a garden because they are predominant plant feeders. They are known to make nests close to their sources of food, and they can swarm quickly, migrating into buildings and becoming a day-to-day nuisance for residents. They typically lay their eggs in the spring, and they are the most troublesome during the warmer months of the year, when they are most active.
