Did you know that there are microscopic mites living on YOUR face? Demodex mites live out their entire lives in the pores of humans and other mammals. Even though humans all over the globe are hosts to these tiny hitchhikers, scientists know very little about face mites. Students in Ecology and Field Biology class explored the relationships that Demodex mites have with some of the students at Cannon School. As a part of our research, we sampled the pores of 30 volunteer students. We are excited to share the results of our experiment with you in our first edition of, “Notes from the Field.”
