Do You Know Who You Are Sleeping With? 

The causes and effects of allergies have long been known and can be a serious health threat. Still, allergies seem to be on the rise. They are an unwanted response of the immune system resulting in inflammation of the eyes and nose, lungs, and skin. It is estimated that allergies affect some 40% of the population at some time and the percentage is on the rise. One controllable culprit in the battle with allergies is the house dust mite, a microscopic insect which is found in our indoor environment. The bedroom is particularly vulnerable for allergy sufferers as we spend 1/3 of our time dressing and preparing for the day. We shed skin scales (which is food to the dust mite) into our bed collected by the linen, pillows, mattress and carpet. All these areas are ideal breeding grounds for the dust mite. House Dust Mite Facts: 1.  It is house dust mite waste, and not the mites themselves, that triggers asthmatic and allergic attaches. Research has revealed this excrement called Der p1.  2.  Mites live on carpets, pillows, upholstered furniture, blankets, mattresses, in the air conditioning system, etc.  3.  The average dust mite is 0.5 mm in length, not visible to the naked eye. Over 7,000 can fit on a fingernail.  4.  A dust mite molts several times during its life producing 200 times its weight in waste and will lay 300 eggs. Each mite produces 40 to 100 feces pellets per day. The mites' droppings are coated in enzymatic slimy substance, which after drying becomes mixed with other particles forming household dust.
