What at first appears to be a pile of rust begins to move, revealing itself to be a carpet of russet-colored, insect-like creatures.

Rust (Ex) Whenever a rust mite swarm deals damage to a creature, any metal armor, shield, or weapon worn or carried by that creature takes an equal amount of damage. A rust mite swarm's swarm attack deals 6d6 points of damage to unattended metal objects. Damage that a rust mite swarm deals to a nonmagical metal object ignores that object's hardness.
Scent Metals (Ex) This ability functions much the same as the scent ability, except that the range is 90 feet and the rust mite swarm can only use it to sense metal objects (including creatures wearing or carrying metal objects).
