Section 16: Other Information
Dust mites are microscopic organisms that live in and around dust particles. They are a major cause of asthma and allergies, especially in vulnerable individuals such as children and the elderly. Hot, dusty roads adjacent to agricultural crops are a major habitat for dust mites. These mites attack crops and negatively affect the quality of the crop yield, for example reducing sugar levels in fruit and vegetables. Applying Dust Proof to dust roads adjacent to crops will greatly reduce or totally eradicate the mites, improving the overall yield quality.
