Mites, belonging to the order Acarina, which includes ticks, are invertebrate animals that belong to the class of arachnids (because they have eight legs). House dust mites are visible only under the microscope, however, they can reach up to 3cm.
Inside the house, the mites feed on dead human cells and animal skin cells, and they can live by the hundreds on mattresses, blankets, pillows, rugs, sofas, soft toys or even curtains. These beings evacuate up to twenty times a day, leaving allergens in their fecal waste (causing allergic reactions).
The perfect environment for mites brings together the heat, humidity and food provided by humans.
They live 2 to 3 months, during which they mate 1 to 2 times, giving rise to laying of 20 to 50 eggs. The most favorable time for mating is spring and autumn.
