Caption: Dust mite. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the dust mite Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus. The mite has an unsegmented, round body with mouthparts that are highly adapted to feeding on the dead scales of human skin found in household dust. Dust mites have eight legs and are relatives of spiders and scorpions. They are smaller than full stops and therefore invisible to the naked eye. Millions of dust mites live inside furniture and fabric in the average home. The dead bodies and excrement of dust mites can cause allergic reactions to household dust. Magnification: x230 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
