Mites – Arachnida
There are countless species of mites, ranging from the Flour mite, Acarus siro to the Velvet mite, Eutrombidium rostratus.
They all exhibit similar behavioural patterns and can be treated accordingly
Adult mites are around 0.3 – 0.5 mm in length wih their development time dependent on atmospheric temperature and humidity.
They prefer warm moist conditions and are very common in beds, soft furnishings and carpets. An adult can live for up to two months.
Why Control Mites?
Mites can contaminate food sources
They have been implicated in causing a number of diseases including dermatitis, respiratory tract irritation, asthma and intestinal upsets
Grain or flour mites are important pests of cereals, dried fruits and vegetables
In the Spring, pollen aggravates allergies and dust mite infestations make it worse
Method of Mite Control
Vacuum cleaning, drying of the environment – removing the humidity in the air – and washing any affected furnishings are effective initial stages in the control method
Contaminated food products should be destroyed
Both of the above are carried out in conjunction with a spray treatment using an approved non-staining insecticide
Particular attention will be paid to cracks and crevices
