Yes! I Finally found out what dust mites were when I moved. It was a very unpleasant experience. Dust mites seemed to like damp moist spots. For instance the facial area, like in your nose, ears, eyes well you get the picture. And YES they do jump to hitch a ride on you to another humid damp area. If you have very sensitive skin as I do you can actually feel them moving around on you. Gross Huh!? Well finally after laundering on a very hot temperature, an air purifier/filter, plastic wrap on bedding, and a dehumidifier I can say I put them pests to rest for now but it is an on going battle that for this time armed with knowledge... I cant lose.

Have a good day an even better night and whatever you do dont let the bed bugs bite,
