Clover Mites

Clover mites are very small, the largest adults measuring slightly less than 1mm long. Clover mites can be reddish or greenish in color. You won't really be able to see this with your naked eye, but they do have one pair of longer legs on the front and feathery scales on their abdomen. In fact, you'll probably just recognize them as tiny red bugs - almost more like little moving dots.

 

Clover mites are closely related to ticks and spiders, but they will not attack or bite you and cannot give you harmful diseases. These pests are also pretty fast, like many of their relatives.
