Post removing dust mites

I have had a mattress stored in my attic for one year and would like to begin using it again. I am concerned about the dust mites that may be on it. What is the best way to eliminate them? Would leaving it outside in the cold overnight (below 32 degrees) kill them?
Thanks for any suggestions.

if you're allergic to dust mites.get a machine that sort of neutralizes or kills them. some air purifiers do that.make sure it's for the sq ft of the whole house
