The Buzzing Return of Pests

Springtime Activity:

As temperatures rise, pests become more active. You’ll notice an increase in flying pests like mosquitoes and gnats, as well as crawling intruders like ants and spiders. Our experienced technicians have already tackled the first wave of active wasp infestations this season.

Clover Mites: The Spring Nuisance

Meet the Culprit:

Among the many springtime pests, clover mites stand out. These tiny arachnids, with their reddish-brown adult form and bright red juveniles and eggs, are a common sight around homes during spring. While they don’t pose a significant threat, they can become a nuisance.

Infestation Signs:

Keep an eye out for what may appear as small black dots on your window sills, no larger than a pencil dot. Upon closer inspection, you’ll find these are minuscule clover mites, which leave a red stain when crushed. They are often attracted to well-fertilized grass and may make their way into your home.


Spring is a season of renewal, but it also brings the resurgence of pests like clover mites. At Barrier Pest Control, we are your trusted partners in keeping your home pest-free year-round.
