    Dust mites have a pair of creepy, pincer-like claws near their mouth, so they look a little threatening under a microscope. But fear not: These little guys aren’t parasites like lice and bed bugs. They don’t feed on blood, and they don’t bite humans.
    That doesn’t mean dust mites are harmless, though. The problem with dust mites is actually that they trigger allergic reactions for many people with allergies, asthma, and eczema. They create a harmful allergen from their body parts and—ummm—their poop.
