Endermites do not spawn naturally in any biome or dimension. Although, they occasionally appear when an Enderman teleports, or when a player throws an Ender Pearl. Each seperate Enderman can only spawn a limited number of Endermites. Every time a Enderman teleports , the chance of spawning one is 15% minus 1% for each Endermite it has already spawned. Ender Pearls have a 5% chance of spawning an Endermite when they are used.
Endermites are very hostile towards the player. In Normal difficulty, Endermites do 2 damage when they hit as opposed to 1 damage when a silverfish hits. Endermites are not hurt by water like Endermen are and they cannot swim and will drown if they are underwater for too long.
Due to some Silverfish mechanics, if left alone, Endermites will try to dig their way into a block, but unlike silverfish, said blocks cannot be crawled into by Endermites. Endermites make the same, slightly deeper, sounds as silverfish. Unlike other mobs, Endermites despawn within 2 minutes, unless they are named with a name tag. When they are named they will never despawn and will live until they are killed.
Endermite will take damage if walking on Soul Sand, This is likely to be because soulsand is less than a block in height yet solid, suffocating the Endermite.
