  • The house dust mite gets its name from its habitat – household dust.
  • The house dust mite has been associated with a range of respiratory and dermatological allergies.
  • If you are allergic to house dust mites, it may help to reduce their population, and remove their dead bodies and faeces from your home as much as possible.
  • You may also need to consider dealing with other allergens in your home to which you may be sensitive. For example, pet owners may need to keep their pets outside.
