Around the size of a pinhead, clover mites are tiny reddish, reddish-brown, olive, pale orange, or even greenish-brown insects with long front legs. Despite not being harmful to humans, clover mites invade homes and businesses in large numbers making them a serious irritant.
Difficult to spot, red stains on carpets, draperies or lightly coloured surfaces suggest a clover mite infestation has taken place. Preferring cooler weather with their activity increasing as temperatures drop, clover mites are the biggest nuisances during these peak periods. But fear not, clover mite control from Terminix Canada’s Newfoundland branch is the best way to eliminate these pests for good.
Clover mites live in and travel via grassy, well-fertilized lawns. If you have grass or vegetation brushing against your home or businesses’ exterior walls, clover mites are more than capable of breaching gaps in a building’s foundation. For what clover mites lack in size, they make up for in determination with these irritants feeding on human food, spreading disease, and being harmful to pets. Laying their eggs in concealed spaces during fall, these spaces include foundation walls, loose tree bark, window frames, and areas beneath sidings.

I called these guys at about 7pm on a Sunday night and by 11pm the ant nest in the wall of my house was dead and no ants have been seen since. I didn't meet the tech personally but he was very professional on the phone and easy to deal with.
