Dust Mites Facts

DUST MITES:

Dust mites are most often found in beds. They may also be found living in carpet, furniture, and clothing. Dust mites primarily feed on dead skin shed by humans and other animals. They can also absorb moisture from the air. Dust mites are harmless to most people. They carry small foreign proteins, often referred to as “allergens”. They don’t carry diseases, but these proteins can cause allergic reactions in people by triggering the immune system to over react. Dust mite allergies can cause asthma, sneezing, skin rashes, a runny nose, itchy eyes, tightness in the chest, difficulty breathing, sneezing, coughing, post nasal drip and skin irritations.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEDBUGS & DUST MITES:

The main difference between bed bugs and dust mites is what they eat. Dust mites feed on dead skin particles, pet dander, and other dust materials while bed bugs feed on blood. Therefore, bed bugs will bite while dust mites do not bite. If you notice red itchy bumps that look like insect bites, it is probably bed bugs.
