Dust Mites - Miniature Menaces.


Hi, welcome to our project webpage, made possible by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. This site was created (and is still under construction) by Stephen, Danny, Francis, Sean and Dennis. We have all decided to become part of a project which investigates microscopic creatures known as dust mites or 'bed bugs' (their proper name is Dermatophagoides = skin eating). We have been working with Mary Cameron and finding out about their habits, lifestyle and how to control their numbers. Below are links to the different sections of our project.
