Hello! I moved to Malta and in with my boyfriend 2 weeks ago. The apartment we live in feels rather humid- even more than I was expecting living on an island. We have been having a lot of trouble keeping everything dry, especially in the bedroom which has a lot of windows that constantly have condensation on them and an ensuite bathroom that doesn't have a fan in it.
Anyways, yesterday morning I awoke to find a tiny white bug on my phone and then I looked at the bedside table to find several of them crawling around. They are white and pretty much look like moving grains of salt. We have researched it and determined that they are mould mites and are probably a result of the humidity and mildew in our bedroom. We vacummed and bleached all the furniture in the bedroom and turned on a dehumidifier/air conditioner in the bedroom. Despite all of that we awoke and the mites were back this morning.
Has anyone else on the island had any trouble with these? Does anyone have any tips to control the humidity and dampness in the apartment? Does anyone know where we can get moisture traps in Sliema?
We are new to this humid climate and we could use some tips! All help is welcome!
