I have been recently diagnosed as being allergic to dust-mites. What can I do to get rid of them besides dusting?

Bedding. A major dust mite exposure area is the bed. Encase your pillow, mattress, and box springs in special dust mite-proof covers. Anything you can't wrap up should be washed regularly in hot water. Keep the head of the bed uncluttered. Maintain a relative humidity of less that 50%. Avoid ceiling fans.
