    Major Types Of Mites In Victoria

    In Victoria, you may encounter a range of mites, and each of them is quite different in terms of characteristics and their impact on humans. Some of the most common mites your property may be infected by could be the following:
    • Scabies mites
    • Bird mites
    • Rodent mites
    • Chigger mites
    • Dust mites
    • Store product mites
    Australia has a wide range of mite species; however, a vast majority of them do not cause any harm to humans and do not need any mention here.

    Why Should You Control Mites On Your Property?

    • Dust mites don’t bite or transmit any disease but trigger allergy. And this is significant as nearly two million Australians are struggling with asthma – nearly 10 percent of the entire population.
    • Scabies mites are known for triggering allergic reactions, including severe itching and threadlike marks in hands, elbows, wrists, and genitals. Importantly, scabies infestations can’t be diagnosed during the initial stage.
    • Bird mites, also known as black mites, do not infect humans. However, they bite humans, causing a prickling sensation and irritation that can lead to rashes and itching. Though they don’t transmit any pathogens to humans, the bite sites can cause a secondary infection.
    • Similar to black mites, rodent mites do not infect humans, but they bite humans that cause itchiness and irritation. These mites do not transmit any disease-causing bacteria or virus to humans.
    • Chigger mites are known for creating localised itching and irritation in humans by their bites. People may find red-raised patches at the bite site, and the mites can transmit a pathogen that causes “scrub typhus” through their bites. These mites prefer to bite the skin areas that have softer tissue.
    • Stored product mites mostly affect people who work in food product processing and packaging industry. Though the advanced processing and packaging measures have significantly reduced the risks of infection, people may experience skin irritation on arms, upper thighs, and torso.
    Minor allergies such as a skin reaction can be relieved by an anti-itching cream. However, if you experience a severe allergic reaction, you should seek medical consultation.

    Most importantly, don’t forget to go for a complete mite treatment at your property to save you and your family from future allergy and asthma issues.

    What kinds of mites are most common?

    Since mites are so small—less than 0.04 inches (1mm) in length—you shouldn’t be surprised that we don’t encounter them very often. In reality, according to scientists, there are at least 48,000 different species of mites around the globe.

    Different types of mites are Clover Mites, House Dust Mites, Itch Mites, Chiggers, Scabies Mites, Rodent Mites, Bird Mites and much more. Furthermore, mites serve various valuable purposes while not being as noticeable as their spider kin.

    The human itch mite, or hominins, belongs to the arachnid family Sarcoptidae, subclass Acari. The stratum corneum is the top layer of skin that the mites never penetrate. Mites are typically found in spaces with high carbon dioxide levels, such as kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, and offices.

    Which types of mite control do you provide?

    Syringing for cultural control. Spider mites may be controlled on the majority of landscape ornamental plants by routine syringing. Additionally, using this method helps protect natural predators.

    Inspection and Quarantine for Cultural Control. The two-spotted spider mites are frequently spread on infected beds and indoor plants. Therefore, when buying fresh plants, carefully look for mite activity on the bottom leaf surface. Until you are sure that there are no mites present, new home plants should be isolated from other plants.

    Tom’s Pest Control Melbourne has a thorough, four-stage treatment process to guarantee a healthy environment around you. We ensure same/next day mite pest control service with certified pest control experts. With us, you will get affordable mite removal treatment that will not break your budget.

    How often should I spray for mites?

    Spraying spider mites every 5-7 days is the most effective technique to get rid of them. You can use a spray bottle of water on smaller plants to achieve this. For bigger plants, you may take them to the sink or shower and spray them off there.

    It would help if you were highly meticulous, making sure to thoroughly spray clean every leaf, top and bottom, as well as all the crevices and crevices on the stems and branches. To ensure you catch any new ones that have hatched since your last cleaning, you must be diligent and continue this therapy for many weeks.

    Since showering them off will also get the soil pretty moist, we recommend that you might need to change your watering routine for a few weeks if you spray your big plants in the shower or sink. This is because constant moisture in the soil can lead to various other issues and draw in additional pests.

    How do you prevent and control mites?

    Our professionals will thoroughly inspect the contaminated property and determine which mite species is to blame to eradicate the type of mite (or mites) that cause any bites or skin irritations. But, of course, examination and identification are challenging since mites are tiny and barely visible without magnification.

    We will develop a personalised treatment plan to remove mites from your property based on our examination results. Specific treatment methods, a schedule, anticipated outcomes, and other information will all be covered in the mite treatment plan.

    We frequently employ a pesticide that is legal and safe for people and pets. We also offer a fantastic selection of safe sprays to eliminate the mites and protect your home from health risks. However, remember that you cannot expect long-lasting effects from a one-time treatment for mite infestation. So, ensure to opt for mite control services regularly.

    Which is the most effective acaricide for the control of mites?

    Acaricides are used to eliminate mites. It includes chlorinated hydrocarbons (such as DDT), organophosphorous compounds (such as Diazinon), carbamates (such as carbaryl), pyrethroids (such as permethrin and flumethrin), formamidines, and avermectins.

    Acaricides obstruct the muscles, nerves, breathing, or development of mites. Abamectin is one of the most effective acaricides. It is very efficient against various phytophagous mites, with LC90 values for Tetranychidae, Eriophyidae, and Tarsonemidae mites ranging from 0.02 to 0.24 GML-1 (Lasota and Dybas, 1991).

    However, we advise that you check the state and federal authorities to ensure that items containing these active components are approved for usage. Always read labels carefully and follow the suggestions.

    Do Mites bite?

    Most mites do not bite people, but they may if they are still on a person’s skin. Modest skin irritation and itching from mite bites do not require medical care. Antihistamines, both over-the-counter and prescription, topical corticosteroids, and allergy injections can all be used to treat mite bites.

    If you have a rash or body burrows, your doctor might be able to identify the mites by looking at them. Additionally, they could attempt to dig one of the mites out of its burrow. Then, they will either use a small needle to extract the parasite from its burrow or a skin scraper.

    The house mouse mite (Liponyssoides saguineus), spiny rat mite (Laelaps echidna), and tropical rat mite are all capable of biting humans (Ornithonyssus bacoti). The house mouse mite likes to feed on the blood of mice, but it will also attack rats and humans, creating a rash around the bite. Hiring a professional team of mite control experts at Tom’s Pest Control Melbourne is better to avoid this inconvenience.
