From the reviews:

"This book is indeed significant, of interest well beyond the acarologist or medical entomologist specialist readership … all that one might wish to discover about dust mites. … Each of the main chapters … would be valuable to students seeking very clear explanations of the main principles involved. … The book is very well-illustrated … . much wider appeal to those interested in arthropod biology, and that emphasizes need for the study of dust mites to go hand-in-hand with that of allergic diseases." (Tim R. New, Journal of Insect Conservation, July, 2009)

"Dust Mites by Matthew J Colloff is a key reference work that provides a unique insight into the biology of dust mites. … will be of great value to mite taxonomists. … deserves a prominent place in the library of anyone interested in dust mites and their associated allergens … . This book is … accessible to the lay reader. Dr. Colloff is to be congratulated on his achievement in making such a vast body of knowledge so readily available." (Ian Thompson, TARSUS, Issue 588, September, 2009)

"This new textbook on dust mites by Dr. Matthew J. Colloff … lives up to its name as the comprehensive reference text on these remarkable creatures. Malt Colloff is a world expert on dust mite biology, ecology and allergy. The text is full of acarological detail, with beautiful figures, and a fascinating history of mites and man. … Every allergist should have a copy!" (Martin Chapman, INDOOR Biotechnologies, July, 2009)

“Dust Mites deals with every aspect on the taxonomy, physiology, ecology and control of mites in our houses, as well as areas regarding allergens and epidemiology. It is the first text on the topic, which seems surprising considering not only their importance but also public perception. … This handsome book is a well-written, comprehensive text and essential reference on one of the most important areas of mite research.” (Owen Seeman, Australian Journal of Entomology, Vol. 49 (1), 2010)
