Cheese mite. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a cheese mite (Tyrolichus casei). Cheese mites infest cheese and other foods, and are usually seen as pests, causing spoilage and asthma in people breathing contaminated air. Some cheeses however, such as Mimolette, are deliberately infected with certain mites to create the correct flavour.
