AKA: House Dust Mite
About the pest
Adults 0.4 mm pale grey brown common world wide living in the dust in domestic dwellings.
Probably responsible for a number of allergic reactions caused by the droppings and cast skins, this can cause skin irritation and respiratory problems.
Dust mites (or house dust mites) belong to the arachnid family, which also includes spiders and ticks.
The mites thrive in warm, humid environments. Because they feed on skin flakes shed by humans and animal dander, dust mites are common in areas populated by people and pets.
Invisible to the human eye, dust mites measure just 1/100 to 1/64 of an inch. Depending on their species, mites live for approximately 30 or 100 days, laying eggs and secreting about 10 to 20 waste particles per day.
Although enlarged photos of dust mites make them appear frightening, dust mites pose only a minor threat to humans. They do not bite or live on humans. Still, for people who are allergic to dust mite proteins, this small pest can cause major suffering.
