About Dust Mites
The American dust mite (Dermatophagoides farinae) is about 250 microns in length and can only be seen with a magnifying glass. It is a disgusting-looking, hairy, eight-legged creature that feeds primarily on dead skin. It really does little harm. The dust mite is blamed for allergies and asthmatic reactions. It is best to wash sheets and pillows in hot water often since the dust mite thrives on skin particles especially from the scalp. The dust mite travels by air current from room to room. Most homes have them in some quantity. It is strange to think that the dust mite is a common household visitor.
