carpet mites


We have purchased several of your products and have been very satisfied.
Now we have a problem with carpet mites.  They are so small as to be almost undetectable.  What do you suggest we use to get rid of them?  They will bite and leave a small red mark.

There are many pests that people call carpet mites. The most common are DUST MITES or STRAW ITCH MITES. Both of these will commonly live inside the home and can be a problem if not treated as we explain in our articles. Other pests that find their way inside the home that could be causing the discomfort include FLEAS, CHIGGERS, SPIDER MITES and CLOVER MITES. At this time I suggest you review the information we have posted for these pests to help identify which of these is most likely the one you have active. Once you get a good handle on just which pest is involved, you can begin to treat with the products listed in their respective article. If you have any further questions, give us a call at 1.800.877.7290.

We had a problem with fleas last year. We got rid of the dog, treated the yard, treated the carpet and shampooed it. We have not seen a flea until about 3 weeks ago when we started to find two or three a day. My children play on the floor and mostly they found them on their leg/arm etc or on their sock. Should we treat again or is this a fluke with the fleas coming in from the yard as we walk in. Our neighbor has a dog that we felt last year was the reason our dog got fleas to begin with. Also, I notice “bites” occasionally as I am sitting at my desk at my make-up mirror. Could this be carpet mites—I have looked with a flash light and never been able to see anything. Thanks.

I have carpet beetles (no carpeting), they were in the closets, draws and beds. Not in the kitchen much. Also, I have plenty of brownish and reddish mites outside and getting in through the basement window.

How do I get rid of this unbelievable infestation of mites and carpet beetles? Also, are carpet beetles the same as clover mites?
