How To Get Rid Of Mites
Mites are one of the most common household pests that many people unknowingly share their homes with. Some mites bite, others cause annoying itchiness, irritation and even allergic reactions. If you are one of those people who may be allergic to mites, they may just be the cause of your daily frustration and discomfort.
Most mites are so tiny they are impossible to see. This is the very reason why mite control can be challenging. While chemical use will work well on some mite species it not always work well on others. Regular and thorough maintenance and house keeping is one of the better ways to prevent and reduce the mite population in your home.
However, if you are already experiencing mite problems, inspection and proper identification is first and the most important step towards any successful mite control program.

The most common mites found in your home are dust mites. The reason for this is that your home offers the dust mites the most comfortable environment they could possibly wish for. Carpets, soft furnishings, clothing, and above all, your warm, snugly, comfortable bed, are all the perfect places where dust mites are mostly found. Dust Mites are tiny and they love warm and humid conditions. They live by feeding off the skin scales that we shed into sofas, carpeted areas, mattresses, linen and pillows. If you have a dust mite problem in your home, you will know it from the symptoms you experience. These include itchiness, coughing, wheezing, and even skin rashes.
