Rat mites have similar life cycle and can live for some time without a host.  Rodents live and run through wall voids after entering the home.  The rat mites migrate from the wall voids and can begin feeding on human hosts by crawling from wall voids where rodent harbor.  occupants will sometimes wake up bitten by these mites and can cause rat mite dermatitis among other reactions.  The reaction can sometimes mimic a bedbug bite.  However, the difference is that you can feel mites biting you while bedbug bites cannot be felt due to the anesthetic properties of bedbug saliva numbing the host before biting.
