They don't seem to be eating into any of the plants. They come out when it starts to get hot / warm and they multiply everywhere! We have them all over our conservatory, drive, garage, path, window sills, doors,. even the eaves!
They look *exactly* like Red Spider mites in that they have 8 legs, the two legs at the front are longer than the two in the middle. The only difference is that:
- they are RED and not orange
- they don't seem to be eating into plants
- they don't have [two] dots on them
When I squish them they leave a little red stain. I hate them! And they're multiplying with each year I do not kill them!
Also- they are all over the bricks on our house, even being found in gravel too. I have no idea where the nest is but desperately need to identify what these things are and what predator I can use to kill them.
