What are mites?

Mites are small pests (most are about the size of a pinhead) that are closely related to spiders. There is a wide range of mites that live both outside and inside our homes. Mites have piercing mouthparts that they use to feed. They will pierce the skin of a plant skin to feed on their liquids or animals to feed on their blood. Mites are wingless and unable to jump, so their main mode of transportation is crawling. Adults have eight legs that they use to move from place to place.

  • Where will I find mites?
    Mites live successfully both indoors and out, depending on their exact species. You'll find them in lawns, gardens, crops, stored foods, and inside of homes. If you suspect that you have a problem with mites either inside or outside of your home, contact us at Bay Pest to identify to species and put into place the services needed to eliminate the infestation.
  • Why do I have a mite problem?
    The most likely reason why mites have become a problem in your home or yard is that there is a suitable food source — grass, leafy plants, decaying vegetation, your pets, or you or your family. Mites are thriving on your property because they can feed and breed. Mites may find their way into your property on their own or be brought in inside something purchased from a store or garden center — potted plants, sod, dry goods, clothing, boxes, or similar items.
  • Are mites dangerous?

    Mites can be dangerous. The problems that mites cause include:

    • Feeding on and contaminating stored pantry items.
    • Causing plant damage.
    • Biting people or animals and creating skin irritation.
    • Causing secondary infections due to excessive itching.
    • Triggering allergies and asthma attacks.
    • Spreading disease.
