Reduce Dust Mites Naturally With Whole-House Humidity Control

A small, but mighty pest that can cause mild to major respiratory issues.


What Are Dust Mites?

Dust Mites Require High Humidity to Survive

Dust mites are microscopic mites that live in many areas of your home. They feed on dead skin and pet dander, live mostly in high-humidity climates, and can survive by absorbing water from humidity in the atmosphere.

That’s why you see older homes, homes located in humid climates, or homes with musty and mildew odors as being more susceptible to dust mites. No matter where your home is located though, you can find them in clothing, mattresses, bedding, carpets, pillows, rugs, pet bedding, furniture, blinds, curtains, and stuffed animals, to name a few.

On average, males can live for about a month, while females can live for about 90 days. Since they live off humidity, they can thrive for as long as it is humid. But, in areas with low humidity, they cannot survive.

Dust mites do not bite, but dust mite allergy symptoms can be quite burdensome. In the most severe cases, dust mites may even trigger asthma.
