 Mites, Scabies and Chiggers Facts

What are Mites?
One of the most diverse and abundant of all arachnids are Mites in the subclass Acari or Acarina, along with ticks. They are members of the Arthropod class Chelicerata and as such are related to spiders, this is most easily seen in their reduced obvious body parts, most Mites appear to have a single body unit (the Idiosoma) with a head (the Gnathosoma) at one end, and the fact that in most juvenile forms and in all adult forms they have eight legs.

Mites are also among the oldest of all terrestrial animals, with fossils from the early Devonian, nearly 400 million years ago. As one of the smallest organisms, mites are truly ubiquitous as they have successfully colonized nearly every known terrestrial, marine, and fresh water habitat including polar and alpine extremes, tropical lowlands and barren deserts, surface and mineral soils to depths of 10 meters, cold and thermal surface springs and subterranean waters with temperatures as high as 50 degrees Centigrade, all types of streams, ponds and lakes, and sea waters of continental shelves and deep sea trenches to depths of 5000 meters. At the smaller end of mite sizes is the species that's like the human follicle mite or the honeybee tracheal mite - small enough to raise its family inside a human hair follicle or within a bee's respiratory tube, and definitely too small (ca. 0.1 mm) to see without a good microscope!.

Mites are very tiny arthropods which occasionally infest structures and bite people. Bird and rodent mites are smaller than fleas and lice, but if you look closely they will appear as tiny, dark specs that move. Scabies are mites that burrow into the skin of a person causing intense itching and irritation. Chiggers are the larval stages of the harvest mite.
