There are these tiny brownish red insects or maybe mites crawling around the bricks of my neighbor's chimney. They are on the inside as well as the outside. My husband said he see's them all the time and they are nothing to worry about but he doesn't know what they are either. So, what is the actual name of these bugs?

These? They are clover mites and they are pretty much harmless and nothing to worry about. I see them all the time on bricks. They love cement.

Yeah most of the time they are mites and clovers are the most common ones. I would guess they are those for sure. They are actually closely related to spiders.

Clovers as well as other mites like to live in the holes of stone, brick, and cement. I can't recall the other names of the mites out there but as mentioned, nothing to worry about.

Think that is bad, be glad you didn't find spider eggs in those bricks. Happened to me once. I screamed like a woman. I still get laughed at to this day. 

They aren't like termites or anything, nothing to worry about.

I get these in my basement in the summer. They are harmless. I never seen that many in my house though, nor in any one area in general. That is a bit odd.

I got those in my basement and on my front porch. Most people don't even notice them. I am a bit of a nut about bugs, hate the damn things, so I spot everything.

I call those buggers brick fleas. They don't do anything. In a lot of cases they actual are helpful for keeping bricks clean from mold and things of that nature.
