I started inspecting the side of the house and found the pests in questions. A closer look revealed that these are clover mites.
Clover mites are pinhead size, reddish plant feeders that occasionally invade homes. They do not pose a threat to humans and are usually encountered on the sunny side of homes.
As I went to inspect the inside of the home I discovered that the clover mites managed to get inside through a tiny gap in the window sill.
I carefully vacuumed up all the clover mites on the inside of the home and then applied a light liquid application along the entire exterior of property, along the bottom of the lower windows, and approximately 10' of the grass areas leading out from the house.
This treatment will knock out these pesky insects in no time at all.
The homeowner informed me that he will hire a professional contractor to seal up the cracks in the all the windows.
This customer in Mantoloking, NJ was complaining about tiny red bugs all over the side exterior of his home.
