Endermites are the smallest hostile mobs in Minecraft.

Spawning[edit]

Using an ender pearl has a 5% chance of spawning an endermite.

Drops[edit]

Endermites drop 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

Behavior[edit]

Endermites will attack players within 16 blocks of them.

Endermites despawn within 2 minutes, regardless of the player's distance from the endermite, except for when they have been named with a name tag. If a mob attacks an endermite, any endermites in the area will become hostile towards that mob.[Java Edition only]

Endermites can attack endermen when spawned with a spawn egg.[Bedrock Edition only]

Endermites, being arthropods, are weak against weapons with the Bane of Arthropods enchantment.

Endermites will take suffocation damage if standing on soul sand, because their height is less than that of a slab.

Endermites will spawn two portal particles around them.

They will attack iron golems.[Bedrock Edition only]

The endermite is based on the silverfish, so they will sometimes try to enter blocks when idle, but can't.

Endermen[edit]

Endermen will attempt to kill endermites, provided they were spawned from ender pearls.

Data values[edit]

See also: Chunk format

Endermites have entity data associated with them that contain various properties of the mob. Their entity ID is endermite.
