About Bird Mites

Bird mites are ovoid in shape, bear eight legs and have short hairs on their bodies. Because they are small and semitransparent, infestations may thrive for some time prior to identification. Bird mite populations are extremely destructive and grow rapidly; eggs hatch in some species after three days and mature into adults within another five.

Although some bird mites are not selective in choosing a bird host, they remain loyal to and often spend their entire lives on the host they do choose. If a host dies, thousands of mites migrate in search of a new host. While these wandering mites have been known to bite humans, they do not attempt to infest human hosts long-term. Bird mites are not capable of surviving for more than a few days, depending on species, without a food source.

To eradicate a bird mite population from the home, it is necessary to locate their breeding and nesting sites. Bird mites tend to reside within the nests of their hosts; so all such nests must be removed. All state and government regulations must be followed, since certain bird species may be protected. Specific pesticides, applied according to the label and regulations, can then be applied in the nesting area in order to prevent future infestations. Contact your local pest control professional to devise a customized approach to treating your home and to discuss appropriate pesticides and extermination methods.

Bird Mite Treatment

Although bird mites rarely cause more than slight skin irritation in humans, they pose great danger to a variety of birds, including pet birds and poultry. Those wishing to remove bird mites from a home or farm often attempt methods such as the application of insecticides. While this method may temporarily prove successful, infestations will resurface after surviving specimens begin to breed again.

Proper identification of the pest is crucial to the success of our custom pest control solutions—the process goes beyond just an extermination procedure. Improper identification can render all control efforts useless.

It is also necessary to locate and discard all nests of pest birds in the affected area. Nests are commonly found in eaves, chimneys, roof spaces, window ledges and small cracks or cavities in walls. However, all state and other governmental regulations must be followed, since certain species of birds are protected and specific actions may be limited. On poultry farms, all nesting materials need to be replaced.

Nesting areas may also require application of appropriate pesticides, applied according to laws and labels, to ensure removal of bird mite populations. Repair of creases in walls, eaves and ledges may discourage further nest building. These procedures should be undertaken on a regular basis to ensure effectiveness. For best results, contact your local pest control professionals. They know how to deal with bird mite infestations in the safest, most effective manner.
