These are not visible and have an average size of 250 to 300 microns. They love to stay in warm and humid places which are mostly in furniture like beds, mattresses and couches. What's annoying is that they chew dead skin of human. These dust mites have proteins which can be found from dust mite droppings. These produce allergic reaction to many people. It is not easy to eliminate them. However, there are many steps to observe to reduce your exposure to the dust mite. Thus, you have to keep its nuisance away from your home. 1.
