Red Spider Mites/Red Aphids

Anonymous added on June 14, 2011 | Answered

Do red spider mites or red aphids bite? I was working in my garden two days ago and was bitten by something very little and red. I now have large very itchy welts in those spots.

Typically, red spider mites are not dangerous to humans and rarely bite us. However, occasionally it does happen when coming into contact with an infested plant. Bites usually resemble small pimples although several bites can clump together and have a rash appearance. Bites will often be extremely itchy. Generally, people who are more sensitive or have severe allergies to mites may experience more itching and swelling than usual.
