As mites are to be individually observed, rearing units are usually small, often consisting of glass slides or Perspex plates on which rings of a plastic material (or rubber or candle wax) are glued, or Petri dishes, boxes of cover slips and the like. Moisture-holding substrates, such as filter paper, plaster of Paris or peat, are usually placed at the bottom of the containers.
