Dust mites

Dust mites congregate where moisture is retained and food for them (human skin scales) is plentiful.

They are especially numerous in bedding, upholstered furniture, and rugs. Padded furnishings such as mattresses, box springs, and pillows should be encased in allergen-proof, zip-up covers, which are available through catalogs and specialized retailers.
