Mites are a nuisance and a danger to your health and home. Mites describe a broad category, including mites with unique attributes that pose hazards to those exposed. Some mites feed on food products, while others bite, causing skin irritation and potential infections. Dust mites are well known for being common allergens. Some mites present a more serious health risk, including spreading dangerous diseases. Mites of any kind should be treated and removed swiftly, as mite infestations can spread rapidly. If you suspect a mite infestation in or around your home or business, contact us to schedule a pest inspection and pest control services. Our experienced pest exterminators can resolve pest issues efficiently.
Mites are arachnids and have eight elbowed legs, fangs, and bulbous-shaped bodies. They come in various colors and are extremely small, most mites can not be seen with the naked eye. There are tens of thousands of mite species worldwide with varying features and behaviors. They are often confused for bed bugs and ticks, which feed on blood, while most mites do not.
Signs of an infestation vary greatly based on the type of mite. The clear way to confirm a mite infestation is by the site. Some mite species are easier to see than others, for instance, the clover mite is bright red and stands out against most surfaces. Other signs of mite exposure may include health symptoms such as skin irritation and respiratory distress. Due to their micro size and minimal human interaction, it can be difficult and take a long time to confirm a mite infestation. For confirmation, contact a professional pest control company to perform a throughout mite inspection.
Mites can live inside or outside, depending on their species. If they wish to enter your home, they will utilize small cracks and holes attracted to fruit and fertilizer. Rodents and birds also attract mites and can spread a mite infestation around your property and spread to your pets. The best way to help prevent mites in your home is to ensure cracks, holes, and foundations are well sealed and maintain cleanliness by vacuuming floors, upholstery, and window treatments regularly. Managing the trash and clutter in and around your home can also aid mite prevention.
Mites can be difficult to treat and completely eradicate, especially without knowing the mite species. Heavily cleaning can often remove smaller infestations and prevent mite growth, but large infestations will require professional service.
