This guide will let you know five things you didn’t know about the Endermite in Minecraft.
Endermiters look like purple silverfish; the model is now changed to today’s one.
Despawn within 2 Minutes
No matter the distance to the player, endermites will despawn within 2 minutes after spawning. It won’t happen if the endermite is named with a name tag.
Using an ender pearl has a 5% chance of spawning an endermite.
Though sharing similar names, endermen and endermites are far from friends. Endermen will try to kill the ender mates spawned from ender pearls.
As with silverfish, endermite will suffocate on top of soul sand, among other blocks. The slight sinking that happens when standing on soul sand is enough to cover a big part of the endermite.
