    Maybe you can breed them and later keep them as pets...OR FEED THEM TO YOUR PLANTS! HOHOHO [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Seriously though, watching baby spiders spinning webs is a rewarding sight for the eye - nature at its best... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Move fast?? snails move faster.. They are so small it would take them days to go a few feet. You really need a 10x magnifying glass to see them clearly.

    Sounds like you have a bunch of red colored baby spiders running around to me...
    Actually, a mite can move across my hand in about a minute... But yea, this sounds like a bunch of baby red spiders [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    hope thats all they are, plus they running around on the side of the house in the sun, so wouldn't they want to be underneath a leaf on a plant and not on the house or porch cement? < mites that is

    Spinder mites are really very tine, you can barely see them, they are smaller than .

    They are rarely seen other than on the plants, and even then the indicator is usually a tent like and very fine webbing over the top of the plants.

    Take a moist q tip and swab the underside of your plants leaves. If there are dark little specs (hee hee) on it then you have a potential problem.

    I also see these little red guys running around, but I have yet to see them on my plants. They sure look like mites because their legs are very tiny in comparison to their body length.
