Little orange bugs, the clover mites.
When I was little my friend and I used to sit on the steps and crush the little orange bugs that used to crawl around. They would leave little orange streaks and we called them brick bugs. When I grew up and entered the pest control industry I would tackle these clover mites on a wider range. They can over run an area, entering buildings and homes and becoming real pests. Professionals would recommend what they call a power spray. If you want to get tricky, you can leave a 2 foot bare track around your home, or you could simply go to your local hardware store, buy a good outdoor spray, and put a good perimeter barrier around your home. Good luck.
