Safeguarding Homes and Businesses from Pests
Although they have eight legs, Mites are indirect kin to spiders and can be found in a vast number of environments throughout the UK making them extremely commonplace. There are many species of mites all of which have specific appetites, though the four that are commonly found within a property are House Dust Mites, Mould Mites, Flour Mites and Bird Mites. .
They are extremely small (only visible to the naked eye whilst amongst each other) and tend to reside in locations where warmth and humidity are present (such as birds nests, bedding, carpets and upholstery) though depending on the species, they may also be found in kitchen areas (pantries and food storage cupboards). That being said, mites aren't known for causing damage to structures or materials but most certainly will exploit them becoming stowaways where they will harbour, breed and utilise crevices to find their food source.
Besides biting humans and animals, mites are capable of triggering allergic reactions to allergy suffers and can reproduce in the 1000s which makes them a considerable threat to occupants making their eradication extremely urgent.
