Mold mites love high humidity and are found where there's mold as this is what they eat. Springtails are also mold easting insects. Their bites are often blamed on fleas.

Springtails eat mold and mildew and then make soil! Booklice, carpet beetles, and the little "pill" bugs/sow bugs all love to munch. Mold mites, also known as tyroglyphid mites, thrive where there is high humidity and mold and mildew.
