What are mites?

Mites are semi-insect organisms that can bite and lead to several diseases when infested. They can be found on humans, animals and plants.
Mites have these stages in their life-cycle:

  • Egg to Larva

Kinds of skin mites


  • Scabies

Scabies are a common human skin mite that burrows into the skin and lays eggs. The larvae of the scabies mite can live in and feed off a hair follicle. They’re very contagious and can easily pass through close contact. They bring rash-like bumps and blisters that mainly develop along folds of your skin, including between your fingers, in the bend of your knees and elbows, around your waist, breasts, or buttocks, around male genitals, on the bottom of your feet. Scabies may cause severe itching which become worse at nights.

  • Chiggers


Chiggers are the larval form of a mite found primarily in the southeastern and middle regions of the United States. These baby mites attach to the skin around pores and hair follicles and cause intense itching. But you must try to avoid scratching, as scratching may lead to infection and fever. Common places that you may get chigger bites are on waist, armpits and ankles. [1]

Itch mites can bite human when they contact straw, hay, grasses, leaves, seeds or similar materials harboring the mites.

Fortunately, this kind of mite has no tendency to live on humans and don’t survive indoors, so it won’t be a big deal. Moreover, it doesn’t transmit disease.
