Grain Mites
 
Recently, I discovered that the dusty powder inside my Nutrena grain bin is living bugs of some sort. My mother believes they are grain mites.

I threw away all of my feed, because I was afraid that they might affect my horses. Do they normally pose a health risk?

And most importantly, how do I get rid of these thousands of bugs that have invaded my entire tack room? Bleach doesn't seem to be doing the trick.
