I have been reading that there is a kit available for determining the level of mite/dust concentration in a single room. Does anyone know of such a kit and where to get it? Also, these authors recommend using aracacides on the carpet to help kill mites and reduce the dust -- i.e. benzyl benzoate powder (leave on for 30 minutes before vacuuming) or 3% tannic acid solution and spray it on. I am wondering if either of these would leave a residue and cause further problems or if anyone has had success with this procedure. Do you have any further suggestions about where I would check on these items and their safety? Thanks.
