  • $\begingroup$ They are approximately 1mm in total size leg to leg. I am suspecting that they are some sort of mite, but they don't seem to bite, or be in the tick family (at least not human blood suckers). $\endgroup$ Jul 2, 2018 at 19:22

    $\begingroup$ Pretty clearly mites, not spiders, but unfortunately I'm not a mite guy. $\endgroup$ Oct 10, 2018 at 19:38

Based on your area and this pest control site I believe that the bugs in your picture are not spiders, they are clover mites. I have found that some clover mites are a darker brown color and also slightly larger. This image gives a better view of the features of a clover mite, including the longer pair of front legs and oval shaped body: Clover mites don't pose a threat to people or animals as they live off of either plants or fungi, but smashing them can leave stains on furniture and clothing.
