Caption: Dust mite. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a dust mite (Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus) resting on dust particles. Millions of dust mites inhabit the home, feeding on shed skin cells. They mainly live in furniture and carpets, and are usually harmless. However, their excrement and dead bodies can cause allergic reaction in susceptible people.
