Dust Mites and Dust Mite allergens are tenants in your home and will never be entirely evicted.  However, there are some preventative strategies that can help kill Dust Mites as well as reducing the symptoms of Dust Mite allergies.
 
Dust Mites are the second most common allergen after pollen so their impact upon our health is significant.
 
One of the most common airborne allergies, Dust Mite allergy can present with symptoms that may include: itching; swelling lips and face; coughing; shortness of breath and wheezing; asthma; dry, itchy throat and tongue; itchy skin, rashes and eczema; diarrhoea; vomiting; headache or anaphylaxis.
 
What is a Dust Mite?
 
A Dust Mite is a tiny, translucent, eyeless, eight-legged creature, measuring just 0.2 to 0.3mm in length. Dust Mites consume several things but the main component of their diet is shed animal skin cells. Since the average human sheds around 1.5 grams of dead skin every week, the mites thrive in your bedding.
 
Don't be alarmed, but a typical mattress may have anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million dead mites! Dust Mites can leave up to 20 droppings a day (which they can also consume) and can produce up to 60-100 eggs.
 
Habits and Habitats of Dust Mites
 
Dust Mites contaminate their habitat with droppings and their shed skins, which are potent allergens for many people, as well as being a trigger for asthma. So it is of particular importance to reduce the Dust Mite population in the home, particularly the bed.
 
As an efficient scavenger there is no doubt that the Dust Mite has become one of the most prevalent domestic problems leading to many allergic reactions. As much as one tenth of weight of a two year old pillow is made up of dead mites and their droppings. Since the average human sheds between 5 to 10 grams of dead skin every week, there is a lot of food available for these scavengers.
 
Dust Mmites don't live in every area of the home, as they need warmth and moisture to survive. As such they cannot actually live on hard floors or in the air, but their droppings and skins can be present there.
 
Imutest Dust Mite Allergy Kit
 
Imutest Dust Mite Allergy Kit is designed for people to use simply and safely in the comfort and privacy of their own home. The test kit detects raised levels of specific IgE allergy antibodies in the blood against Dust Mite allergens, and clinical trials show that Imutest gives the same accuracy of results as a hospital allergy test.
