Michina Pyroglyphidae (Nostril Mite)

Michina Pyroglyphidae (Nostril Mite)
This commonly found species lives deep inside the nostrils of warm blooded animals including humans. They usually feed on nose hair and other food sources including nose wax. Sometimes they do suck blood from the host when the food sources in the nostril become scarce.
