Mites are microscopic arthropods, measuring less an 1mm in length (hence the name), with jointed legs and skeletons on the outside of their body. Among arthropods, mites are the most diverse and successful of the invertebrate class, with a few being parasitic, but the majority are non-parasitic and free-living. Mites exist and survive on land and water, and most mites are not harmful to animals. Due to their extremely small size, mites often are often overlooked.
Self-treatment of a Mite infestation is unlikely to be successful. Failed treatments will occur if the accurate knowledge of Mites is absent. A trained professional will have the technical expertise and access to a range of professional use products and equipment which are not available to the public.
