In brief: Unfortunately, no

To truly decrease dust mite symptoms, several measures are needed including encasements over bedding, hot water washing, reducing humidity and no carpet or frequent vacuuming.
Some sprays kill mites, others denature mite proteins, but by themselves they are not sufficient to decrease symptoms.
