The oil from the red velvet mite Trombidium grandissimum is used in traditional Indian medicine to treat paralysis. Also, due to their alleged ability to increase sexual desire, Trombidium mites are known locally as “Indian Viagra. Since the diet of the Giant Red Velvet Mite consists of many pests, the mite could be used as a potential biological control tool. They are also vital to the rate of soil decomposition and greatly help maintain balance in soil ecosystems. The mites spend a majority of their time underground and only emerge after heavy rains to feed.
