Scabies are also known as the “Human Itch Mite.” This mite is of greater interest to the doctor than to the pest control operator. Its treatment and control is usually accomplished under a physician's care. The mite results in an intense itching for its victim and a rash that develops after 2 months. The scabies skin condition occurs most commonly where there is a crowding or uncleanliness. Scabies is transmitted by prolonged contact with someone who is carrying scabies. A simple handshake or hug should not be long enough exposure to transmit these mites. This technical advice will help treat any hard or soft surfaces. The mites do not live longer than 48-72 hours outside of a human body.
