Similarly, can you eat cheese mites?
The FDA is fighting the mites with all their strength so you can eat cheese without tiny spiders. But if you should find yourself in a country where cheese rules (and flavor too), man up and take a bite. Every mite you eat is more than worth it for the flavor of a perfectly aged Mimolette.
Also Know, where do cheese mites come from? Cheese mites are only found in long-aged cheeses that develop a natural rind. They prefer cheeses that are dry and have a rind densely colonized by molds, their main source of food. As they wander across the cheese rind landscape, they munch on the fungi on and in the rind and burrow into the paste.
In respect to this, how do I get rid of cheese mites?
The best way to do this is by vacuuming them away—just like you do with the dust mites frolicking in your carpet. Other ways to get rid of cheese mites include blowing them away or tricking them into eating diatomaceous earth and then having their digestive tracts wrecked (thus killing them) as they digest the diatoms.
What do cheese mites look like?
“They take the color of whatever they're eating.” Mimolette cheese mites have an orange hue, for example, while those on Comté are dark brown.
