Mites are part of the arachnid family, which means they have an abdomen with four pairs of legs. Believe it or not, there are thousands of different species of mites in the world but the most common mite in Southern California is called Paratarsotomus macropalpis and it measures around 0.7mm. This species that is native to SoCal is recorded as the world’s fastest land animal relative to body length.
Typically, mites can be found on sidewalks or around rocky locations. They are able to survive both on land and in water and while most are not harmful, there exists mites that can cause harm to crops and poultry or transfer diseases and cause skin irritation.
Mites hatch from eggs and develop though larval and pupal stages. Some mites are predatory (feeding on other mites or animals) while others prefer feasting on plant material. Common mite species that you might want to do further research on include Bird Mites, Chigger Mites, Clover Mites, Red Mites, and the Southern Red Mite.
Contact pest professionals such as Preferred Pest Control to correctly identify the type of mite on your property so that the correct treatments can be applied.
Since there are many types of mites, a mite infestation could have many different signs to look out for. Since mites are so small, many times it is difficult to see them without a magnifying glass but you can probably spot them if they are on the move.
Some mites can make a silk like webbing like spiders and usually do this around plants where they feed so discoloration of leaves is another sign of a possible mite infestation.
Also, certain mites can cause skin irritation. Since skin irritation is a sign of many possible issues, it is best left for a physician to determine if it is mite related or not.
