HD Animation Shows The Life Of Dust Mites

THESE alien-like beings look like something from another planet - and chances are they have already invaded your home. This animation by Sciepro Science Productions shows house dust mites moving and feeding among human detritus. The uninvited guests are barely visible to the unaided eye, with the average mite measuring only a quarter of a millimetre in length. The mites thrive in human habitations, especially bedrooms and kitchens, and feed on organic material such as dead skin cells, but are a major trigger for asthma and other allergic conditions.
