Understanding A Carpet Mite Infestation

What Are Carpet Mites?

Carpet mites are a subset of dust mites that feed on organic matter, including pet sheddings, food crumbs and human skin cells. You can tell a carpet mite infestation apart from a dust or bird mite problem because carpet mites will typically be found in carpets and furniture. Carpet mites also grow to around 0.2 mm to 0.3 mm, making them smaller than most other dust mite species.
