Is it a mite?

Hi there,

May I know is it a mite and what kind of mite is it? Why it comes to my home and what do they feed on? And what should we do next.

We found that little dust firstly at home, near the area we have a digital piano and a dehumidifier - the humidity at my home is always higher than 70%. I collected some sample and used a torch to observe them, they are moving little bugs... Also used a 100x microscope and taken a picture of them.

They don't appear very frequently, but after seeing its body under microscope, I m a bit worry it may make kid allergy.

Thank you so much!

Carpet Beetles

I’ve been dealing with carpet beetle larvae for about 5 months. Have not found the source. Have vacuumed & cleaned my house top to bottom. Nothing in my cabinets either. For the first time today I found an adult on my kitchen wall. I’m at my wits end. Any ideas where they may be coming from? Please help! I’ve had an exterminator spraying house also for the past 4 months.

While handling my Chilean Rose-Haired Tarantula, it started spinning a web around my hands. Should I be worried? Was she stressed?

Tiny black bugs around bathtub, kitchen faucet.

What are they? They come in bathtub and behind kitchen faucet. If I read with a book light at night they come around. Seems to be an infestation at the moment. Don’t live long, I find many dead. So small they can come through screens. I live in Hawaii in wet vegetation. My son says they are Barrel Bugs? Is there anything I can do to get rid of them?
