Aim. From the second half of the twentieth age there is gradual growth of distribution of allergic diseases. Approximately every fifth habitant has one or another displays of allergy. In addition, for the last decades displacement of beginning of allergic displays is marked on more early age, and increase of number of heavy clinical displays of disease.

Methods. With the purpose of help specialists with unmedical education to the entomologists, parasitologists and to the assistants-parasitologists of regional (district) and city laboratory centers of sanitary-epidemiology service, to the listeners of medical academies of post-graduate education this method of finding of allergen mites was developed.

The wet method of dust selection, which is offered by us, is not only simple and accessible in the use, not requiring economic expenses but also allows to conduct the high-quality monitoring after the state of contamination of the different particles of environment.

Result. Kharkov regional Sanitary & Epidemiological Service does more than 5 years of dust researches by this method. These researches were successfully conducted in the presence of dustborne mites. On the basis of these results the patent of Ukraine is got on an invention: Patent № 60763 UA, MPK A61V10 / 00 [9], this method is in detail described in a train aid, which was ratified scientific advice of the Kharkov medical academy of post-graduate education in 2012. «Mines of domestic dust. Distributions. Ways of discovery. Рrophylaxis»

Conclusions. By the wet method of selection of domestic dust, even in barbershops, where a minimum of soft inventory, and the working tool of masters-hairdressers (masters of manicure) washes and disinfected, positive finds come to light. As compared to a selection and research of dry tests of dust, a wet method is more effective and high-quality yet and because a wet brush does not enable dust, and to the present of mines in it, to fly away at a selection, as it takes place during a lead through of research by wet clothes-brushes
