Bird Mites

Bird Mite

Bird Mites are generally associated with moist or humid conditions and are most active during spring and early summer and are naturally where birds (such as Pigeons, Starlings, Sparrows and poultry) and their nests are located.

Small (less than 1mm long) and with 8 legs bird mites are very mobile in searching for their food – the blood of birds.

Humans can be exposed to bird mites when young birds leave their nests and the mite is left without a suitable host to feed on. They may then move into living spaces in homes, walls, ceilings and bedding in search of a blood meal.

They will feed on humans and irritate and cause bites in doing so. Bites from bird mites cause severe irritation including itching, swelling and raised reddish spots on the skin. This is caused by mites injecting saliva when feeding.
