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:
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.
The Pest Control Service
At Tom’s Pest Control, we have a comprehensive, four-stage treatment procedure to ensure a healthy atmosphere around you.
Once you contact us with a mite removal request, we will schedule an inspection at your property based on your convenience. Our qualified mite control specialists will come to your property and identify the mite species, the extent of the infestation, any damage found, and more.
We will also identify the reasons behind the mite infestation to address the issue comprehensively.
Mite Treatment Plan
Based on our inspection findings, we will create a tailored treatment plan to make your environment free of mite. The mite treatment plan will detail specific treatment procedures, the timeline, the expected results, and more.
We will describe everything about the treatment to you before beginning the treatment procedure.
The Eradication Procedure
We will complete the treatment procedure as described in the treatment plan. In many cases, we either use an approved insecticide that is safe to humans and pets. We also have an excellent range of safe sprays to kill the mites and secure your property from possible health issues.
A one-time treatment for mite infestation can’t give you results for the long term. With a range of tips and strategies, you can limit the regrowth of the mites in your environment.
Some tips that can help you to limit the growth of mites in your space include regular cleaning of carpeted areas, change of beddings every week, reduced humidity levels, improved ventilation, and more. In addition to these general tips, we will also provide you with specific tips and strategies that are particular to your property and mite species.
