5% chance when an ender pearl lands
Endermites are the smallest hostile mobs in Minecraft.
Endermites have a 5% chance to spawn when an ender pearl lands.
Endermites attack players (and iron golems[Bedrock Edition only]) within 16 blocks of them. If a mob attacks an endermite, any endermites in the area become hostile toward that mob. They can attack endermen when spawned with a spawn egg.[Bedrock Edition only]
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.
Endermites spawn two portal particles around them.
Endermen attempt to kill endermites that spawn from ender pearls and spawn eggs.
