Is Onslaught suitable for Mold mites in bedroom?

In the past few weeks my bedroom has been invaded by mold mites. Do you think Onslaught would be the best solution? l need something which can be sprayed over the carpet but I'm also concerned about spraying and breathing an insecticide in my tiny bedroom (only 6x7ft). I now have a dehumidifier but would you recommend this product for such an application along with steri fab?


Mold mites only develop where there is moisture or high humidity.  The first step should be to eliminate humidity or moisture that is producing favorable conditions for molds and mites.  The term mold mites commonly includes the cheese mite, flour mite, and grain mite which can infest stored food and grain, so finding them in your bedroom could mean that you are dealing with a different type of pest. It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with mites and the type of mite. Have the suspected mite identified by a reputable source, such as your local cooperative extension office or a reputable pest control operator.  Onslaught is labeled for "mites" in general but different pests will require different treatments. Sterifab would be a great supplemental contact kill insecticide that can be applied to a wide variety of areas including furniture, mattresses, clothes, etc.
