What should I do if I can't get rid of mites in the bathroom?


Answer by  Negnancy (19)

Pour bleach down the drains regularly. Spray lemon juice on your mirror to clean it. Wash the floors with bleach. Dust off anything with too much dust. Use comet in your toilet bowl, sink, and shower to clean them. Clean counters with baking soda and water, or a cleaning supply. Clean everything at least once every 2 weeks.

Mites like dark, damp areas and the bathroom is a perfect place. If possible, have air circulating in bathroom to keep areas dry. Natural control can be obtained with mint, citrus, cedar, or cayenne pepper steeped in water and then used as a spray in the area.

You will never be able to completely eliminate mites because there is so much organic matter and dust in a home. But to reduce the numbers, you can use the pesticide Permethrin, insecticidal soaps, or hot water.

You should call an exterminator. Because they have been in the business and know what it takes to destroy the pests.

Your bathroom is very humid and this is causing the mites. You need to get the humidity levels down and the mites will then decrease or go completely. Install a fan if you can or keep a small window locked on a latch to allow air in.

First, make sure they are mites. Mites have 8 legs, insects six. Mites are drawn to moisture; the best way is to keep your bathroom dry at all times.

Bathrooms are very humid and moist, a perfect place for mites to live. You need to keep air circulating in the bathroom. You should have either a fan or a window in your bathroom, leave it open or on. If that doesn't work call a pro.
