About the Clover Mite

As their name implies, clover mites feed mainly on vegetations, such as grasses and clover. They pose no real threats to human or animals, but they do appear in large numbers and the volume itself is a nuisance.

The body of the clover mite is covered in minute, plate-like scales for protection, but they are small and easily crushed or wiped away.

Clover Mite Control

Population control is key when dealing with clover mites because they do reproduce quickly and appear en masse. Strategic Industries employs an array of safe, effective processes using proven products to treat this pest problem.
