mites are tiny biting mites that normally
occur outdoors in dry, brushy areas. Bites result in
red, swollen and intensely itchy lesions. Chigger
mites do not normally occur indoors and do
not infest homes. Insect repellents are
somewhat effective protection against bites.
mites can be yellow to red in color, they have six
legs that are covered with hairs (setae). These tiny
mites are actually the larval
stage of a much larger predator mite that
lives in the soil.
