Helping homeowners get rid of pests like clover mites for over 90 years, Terminix Canada has pest control professionals you can trust.

DIY clover mite spray and stopgap solutions like baking soda are no substitute for our professional clover mites treatment. Get long-lasting results and ultimately, peace of mind over the look and feel of your home.

Typically, clover mites’ activity increases in the cooler seasons like spring and fall. Laying clover mite eggs in concealed spaces during fall, new generations of clover mites enter warm weather hibernation in summer. 

More irritating than dangerous to humans, clover mites still invade homes in large numbers. Hunting for food, they don’t bite but given their tiny size, they are trodden on and create red staining on carpets, rugs and wallpaper. In extreme cases, clover mite infestations can affect the structural integrity of buildings. More often, clover mite control is a necessity since these tiny insects spread disease and are harmful to household pets.

Ultimately, clover mites feed on human food and hunt for it in your home. Clover mites live in and travel via grassy, well-fertilized lawns. If you have grass or vegetation brushing against your home’s exterior walls, clover mites are skilled at breaching gaps in a building’s foundations. Laying clover mite eggs in concealed spaces during fall, these spaces include foundation walls, loose tree bark, window frames, and areas beneath sidings.

Clover mite control involves removing grass and other vegetation from your property’s perimeter. Leaving a strip of soil or stones about two feet wide can help. In short, clover mites are not as likely to migrate through bare loose soil or stones. Elsewhere, sealing any holes, cracks and gaps in your home foundation including windows and doors is key. Ensuring window and door screens fit snuggly is important since clover mites are miniscule and can breach the tiniest gaps. Lastly, never over-fertilize your lawn or ornamental plant areas since clover mites thrive in well-fertilized lawns.

For a proper clover mite control solution, call Terminix Canada. Not only is our clover mites treatment safe, it’s a proven clover mite killer. Our professional clover mite exterminators will prevent the unsightly red staining in your home.
