Easily mistakable for a speck of dust, dust mites are a type of insect that you want to keep an eye out for! Dust mites are harmless to humans, but they do create “dust” from transmission of sheddings that can affect your allergies.
Where do they live?
To be close to their food source, Dust Mites live on mattresses, bedding, furniture, carpets and curtains that attract the small skin particles that Dust Mites feed on.
What do they eat?
Dust Mites feed on small particles of dead skin that people and pets shed on a daily basis. That’s why dust mites favor areas where skin flakes are discarded like bedding, furniture, and curtains.
