What happens when a person is bitten by a spider mite?


Answer by  fishy (1085)

Spider mites rarely bite people, however, if a person brushes against some of them on a tree, the bites will be similar to very small mosquito bites. They may have a white center and might be grouped to look like a small rash. Very itchy, but no diseases.

Spider mites do not bite humans and are only threats to plants and crops. The mites have structures that split and break leaf cells. In large numbers they can cause significant damage.

Spider mite bites do not bite humans. They attack plants and their prime season is the summer. They cause major damage to crops and plants if they are not taken care of and killed. They are also sometimes refered to as dust mites. Your plants and crops can be protected by checking them regularly for an infestation

Well depending on the spider mite, the region may swell and you need to apply some cream over it. If you are getting some kind of burning sensations, then there may be some poison injected from the mite. Therefore, you have to go to the doctor and get rid of it.

I don't believe spider mites bite humans, they do feed on plant materials. If you think by chance you have been bitten by one, and have an allergic reaction at the bite site, then going to a doctor would be your best bet to see what treatment you may need.

Not much it may itch or be sore for a few days but other than that you shouldn't even know that it has happened. If it becomes bothersome you will need to go in and see the doctor.
