Mites: Ecology, Evolution & Behaviour Life at a Microscale, 2nd Edition by Evans Walter and C. Proctor :: Most mites are minuscule, barely perceptible to even the sharpest eyes, but size is a poor guide to importance. When a crop disappears under a blanket of silk or stored food turns into a seething mass of hairy motes, then the numbers of mites will be legion. If the mite is an itch mite burrowing in one’s skin or a tick or chigger injecting virulent rickettsiae into one’s blood, then a single mite may be enough to affect one’s life dramatically.
