oak mites

I have 3 northern red oak trees in my yard. We apparently have oak mites which we have brought into the family room. When you sit at the desk or on the sofa your arms and ankles are covered in bites. We use calamine lotion that helps with the itching;but how do I get rid of them. You cannot see them I have vacuumed, use blankets on the sofa which I wash regularly, tried sprays, salt (good for fleas), borax powder and lice/bedbug spray with no results. The itching makes it difficult to sleep. It is December is there hope?
