Abstract
This research aimed to find path model for various factors of internal environment of residences of respiratory tract allergy patients which can be used as guidance in reducing the population of Dermatophagoides mites in house dust. Dermatophagoides mites produce allergen liquid which can trigger respiratory tract allergic reaction. This current research has found path model among a number of internal environment factors which can be used to conclude that the population of Dermatophagoides mites has direct and indirect correlations with internal environment of respiratory tract allergy patients’ residences. Internal environment factor which has direct correlation with the mite population is the protein level of dust particles; while other factors have indirect correlation. There are two internal environment factors which do not correlate with the mite population, namely pH level and water level in house dust. Through empirical interpretation of the path model, five strategies to control Dermatophagoides mite population are proposed.
