Parasitic mites of Surinam. X. Mites and fungi associated with house floor dust

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

    Abstract

    Nine dust samples from the floors of houses in the Paramaribo region of Surinam, South America, were analysed for mites and fungi. Most of the mites were Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (a pyroglyphid mite producing house dust allergen). Houses of the middle class tended to have more of these mites than those inhabited by the poor or the wealthy. The indidence of Blomia sp., Suidasia medanensis and Aspergillus clavatus could be due to the presence of stored rice.
