Welcome to our comprehensive webpage on pest control for mites and chiggers. This webpage will explore what mites and chiggers are, how they can infest your home, what steps you can take to prevent them, and how Imperial Pest PRevention can control them.

What are Mites?

Mites are tiny arachnids that belong to the same family as spiders and ticks. They are found in various habitats, including soil, plants, shrubs, and animals. Some mites are harmless to humans, while others can cause allergic reactions or transmit diseases. Common mites that can infest homes include dust, bird, and rodent mites.

What are Chiggers?

Chiggers are the larvae of certain species of mites. They are commonly found in grassy areas, fields, and lawns and can attach to human skin and cause intense itching. Chiggers are most active in the summer and fall months.

How did I get Mites?

Mites can enter your home in a variety of ways. Dust mites, for example, are commonly found in bedding, carpets, and upholstered furniture. Bird and rodent mites can enter homes when birds or rodents nest in attics or crawl spaces. These mites can then move to other parts of the house for food.

How did I get Chiggers?

Chiggers are typically found in grassy areas, so if you spend time outdoors, you are at risk of getting chigger bites. Chiggers attach to clothing or skin and can be carried into your home. Pets can also bring chiggers into the house.
