Identifying House Dust Mite Problems

House dust mite problems have received much attention in the early 1990s and again recently. House dust mite infestations are nearly impossible to see without magnification and are named for the fact that they feed on dead skin shed by humans as well as other protein materials.

Locating House Dust Mite Infestations

House dust mite infestations feed on dander (dead skin which is shed) from humans and animals. House dust mite infestations may also feed on protein based foodstuffs, preferring dried products over products with moisture. Females lay up to 80 eggs and there are several stages of immatures. Populations can explode during humid months as house dust mite problems are excellent at absorbing moisture from the air. The most common area for finding house dust mite problems is in the bed due to abundance of dander. House dust mite infestations may also be found in living areas especially carpet, furniture, and clothing. Several home test kits are available to test for dust mites.

House Dust Mite Threats

People may be allergic to house dust mite cast skins and droppings. These reactions will not be a rash type of reaction but rather a respiratory constriction, a common symptom of asthma. Itchy, watery eyes may also be symptoms. Approximately 50-80% of asthmatics may have symptoms due to house dust mite infestations.
