Clover Mite Prevention
Effective control means preventing entry into your structure during their active times in the spring or the fall. The best way to prevent entry is to remove grasses and weeds in a three-foot strip around foundations. Some flowers and plants are less appealing to clover mites. If these plants are located near the house, it may serve as a deterrent. Examples of these plants and flowers include: petunia, salvia, geranium, chrysanthemum, rose, zinnia, yew, arborvitae, juniper and spruce.
