Getting Rid of Mites with Sterifab

A Bit About Mites

Mites may be among the most wide-spread creatures on the planet; they are certainly among the most diverse. They can survive in a wide array of habitats and, because of their small size, they largely go unnoticed. Remarkably, there are 3-5 million known species of mites.


The vast majority of mite species are harmless to humans, but some are far from benign. In fact, more than 250 million people become afflicted with mites each year. They can be found in hair follicles and the sebaceous (oil) glands on the skin, often near the nose, the eyebrows and eyelashes.


That's why it is so hard to get rid of mites! Luckily, Sterifab is an effective, non-residual mite killer, and you can use it on almost any type of surface.

Why You Want to Get Rid of Mites

In addition to finding their way into hair and skin, mites also inhabit other parts the body, such as the ears, in ear wax, on the scalp, and in skin folds.


While, for some human hosts, tiny mites cause no symptoms at all, there are also those who, for a variety of reasons, are unluckily prone to infestation by these minuscule insects. More ominously, the few species of mites that are able to live on humans, can transmit diseases or cause allergenic disorders.


Getting rid of mites is not as hard you think. Sterifab is a highly effective mite treatment that you can use to protect yourself, your family and visitors to your home. After all, you never know who might have a mite allergy.

How Do You Know If You Have a Mite Infestation?

Just as there are many different types of mites there are also a multitude of places they can call home. Members of the arachnid family, they can be found in bedding, carpets, air ducts, dusty attics, plants, and animals of various kinds. They are particularly fond of crowded and congested environments, such as nursing homes, day care centers and college dormitories. In fact, they can be found virtually anywhere and it can be tricky to know how to get rid of mites.

Sterifab can be used as a mite treatment on practically any inanimate object or location, and there are no other U.S EPA-registered products that can boast so many uses – viricide, bactericide, sanitizer, insecticide, deodorant, germicide, disinfectant, mildewcide, fungicide, bacteriostatic or fungistatic.

Use Sterifab to Prevent Mites from Returning

Mites may be the easiest of pests to overlook, simply because they’re, well, minute! And while there may be upwards of 48,000-plus species on the planet, not one of them is larger than 0.04 inches (1mm) in length. In other words, they’re very, very hard to spot!  


And while mites don’t pose a mortal threat to people, they do transmit several diseases and are the culprits to blame when it comes to many allergies, such as eczema, asthma and hay fever.

If you have a mite problem or are suffering from allergies, here’s how keep mites gone for good:


  1. Get rid of clutter around the house, such as stacks of paper or laundry piles.

  2. If you have a moisture problem, try to address it. Moisture attracts mites and will make it hard to keep them away. 

  3. Clean your house regularly. Vacuum bedrooms, mattresses, floors, carpets,  rugs and mats. Mop the floors and wash all your quilts, pillows, blankets, etc.

  4. Apply Sterifab periodically. It’s a pesticide and a disinfectant, so it will kill mites and sanitize the area’s they’ve occupied. Plus, it’s odorless and leaves no trace!
