People think that a mite infestation, especially the spider mite infestation is more a nuisance than anything.
After all what harm can these critters cause… no bacteria, no virus… no big deal.
But the truth is much more complicated, and much more dramatic than that.
The spider mites that live their whole life-cycle hidden from observation, have the visible stage: the nymph getting nutrients from the host.
A simple bite would harmful, would be painful, maybe it even would itch, but it probably wouldn’t kill you.
What kills you, and it does, that the nymph is attached to your skin, inner or outer, and its chemicals irritate the skin for days.
