Abstract

277 samples of house dust collected in 1996-1998 from 17 flats, three hospitals, two hotels and one students' hostel situated in the cities of Gdanskand Gdynia were subjected to acarological examination. Acari were found in50 (37.3%) of 134 samples from the flats, in 11 (15.5%) of 71 samples fromthe hospitals and in 13 (18.1%) of 72 samples from the hotels. The majority of mites (91.6%) was found in samples that originated from the private flats. 95.0% of mites from the flats, 35.0% mites from the hotels and 8.0% mites from the hospitals belonged to two dust mite species pf the family Pyroglyphidae: Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus and Dermatophagoides farinae. D. farinae was significantly predominant and composed 82.8% of the whole pyroglyphid collection. Samples from private flats contained significantly more mites than those from hospitals and hotels: mean mites densities per 1 gramof dust were 13.07, 1.03 and 1.00, respectively. The authors suggest that only density of house dust mites in private flats may be clinically important.
