This product provides relief from: Dust Mites

DustMite and Flea Control by The Ecology Works® is the clean and natural way to kill dust mites and fleas in carpet and upholstery and keep them away. Mix DustMite and Flea Control with water and use as a spray or in a carpet steamer (or water extraction machine) to create an environment that is absolutely fatal to dust mites & fleas but is perfectly natural and harmless to your family and pets. DustMite and Flea Control is not a harsh chemical or dangerous poison, but a natural Boron Compound much like the Borax used in laundry cleaning. This clear, odorless treatment has a neutral pH that does not stain light-colored fabrics.

DustMite and Flea Control comes in a powdered form that you mix with water. Choose the 8-oz bag to treat up to 200 sq. ft., or the more economical 2-lb bag to treat up to 800 sq. ft. Also available from The Ecology Works is DustMitex, a pre-mixed, ready-to-use form of DustMite and Flea Control in a 32-oz spray bottle that treats 50 sq. ft. (DustMitex sold separately).


  • DustMite and Flea Control powder for carpets dissolves completely in water and leaves hardly a trace of its presence
  • Dries into a clear crystal that coats the mite's food source, thereby greatly reducing the dust mite population within 2 weeks
  • A recent medical study indicates that after 8 weeks, nearly every mite inhabiting carpet or furniture will be dead...and won't come back between treatments
  • As with all mite-control products, begin your treatment in the bedroom first
  • Once dissolved in water, can be applied using a spray bottle for small areas, or a pump sprayer or carpet steamer for large carpeted areas
    • 8-oz bag dissolves to cover 200 sq ft
    • 2-lb bag dissolves to cover 800 sq ft
  • Frequency of treatment:
    • After applying for the first time, reapply in 4 months
    • Thereafter, apply twice a year
  • Clear and odorless, this product will not stain lightly colored fabrics
  • Low toxicity means safe to use


Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate, inert ingredients.

Judging from the dirty water that came out of the cleaner, it looks like it did a fantastic job. There was a bunch of little white specks which I assume is dust mite larvae. We'll see if the sneezing and blowing of noses is helped.

I have used this product for several years on the carpet in my living room as I have a dust mite allergy as well as a cat (that I am allergic to). I use it, along with the cleaning solution in my steam cleaner. Works amazing, I have noticed a significant difference in my symptoms since I discovered and started using this product.

This is a soluble borax compound that is dissolved in water and sprayed on curtains or rugs. The borax kills the dust mites and fleas (if there are any). I bought it to control dust mites.

We chose this as it seemed to be cheaper to cover a large area of carpet and other areas.
I had immediate improvement after using this on bedding & carpet (chronic dust/dust mite allergy had me sneezing in bed & stuffed up & waking as such every day).... great improvement within a couple of days.
My dust allergy is severe. The inflammation in my nasal passages shocked my diagnostician. I would have attacks several times daily. I treated my bedroom with this and also my cats' sleeping areas, and will do the rest of the house soon. My nose is actually clear and it feels like the inflammation is actually going down. I haven't had an attack for over a week now, so the effect of the treatment has really kicked in!
See my comment about this spray in the Item # 360-1115. I accidentally wrote the review in that product section, which is the power that comes in the bag. It was meant for the pre-mixed spray. I do plan on putting the power in my steam vac when I shampoo the carpets.
I wish I had known about this product long before now. I just order it in July and I can see some relief already. I will never ever be without it. Thanks to National Allergy for making available a product that works so good.
I love this stuff. I use it on carpets, bedding, upholstered furniture, and it has never stained or smelled toxic.
I noticed a reduction in my allergy symptoms right away.
Have used this product for a long time with many reorders. Have a spray bottle, put a tablespoon in and the rest water. Spray carpet and other cloth about a hour before vacuuming. Also all dist mite issues in my house are gone.
It works great for keeping the dust mites at bay. It is fairly easy to use, doesn't smell and is non-toxic. It works well on carpets, rugs, throw pillows, poofs, car interior and chairs with porous upholstery. However, it is difficult to test properly since it takes days to weeks to do damage or not, as I found out the hard way with my expensive Hunter Douglas blinds which suffered some from use.
