Store Room Attic Basement

Areas where belongings are stored are not often cleaned and are known for large accumulations of dust. The absence of humans from these areas may mean that the constituents of the dust differ from house dust found in other rooms, therefore changing the habitat and possibly selecting for different species of dominant mites. The humidity of the storeroom may determine the presence of fungi and therefore stored product mites. The fact that basements are at the lowest level and attics at the highest level of a house or building will greatly influence the humidity, and therefore the diversity of mite species in these rooms.
