Effects of Birdmites at Your Home/Office

Bird mites are insects that live in the skin of birds and are pests that many people don’t think about. Even if they live on the skin of different birds including chickens, they can find their way into homes and other structures. This is when they can become a problem for humans. Although bird mites are a pest, they aren’t a parasite to humans. That is, they don’t need human blood to survive.

Bird mites need the blood of birds to complete their life cycle and survive but they still can bite humans. Symptoms of a bird mite bite are similar to bites of other insects and mites. You may develop small red bumps or a crawling sensation on your skin. Bird mite bites also cause itching, which can be severe at times. In the case of intense itching, constantly scratching can break the skin. If bacteria gets underneath your skin, this can lead to a secondary bacterial infection. Symptoms include: pain, redness, discharge, etc. Itching can also become so severe that it keeps you awake at night.

People who come in close contact with a bird with mites is at risk of a bite and severe other diseases these tiny pests spread. Yet, some people have a greater risk. Sometimes, birds will build their nest in chimneys, and within small cracks of a home where you cannot spot them easily. If birds living in a nearby nest become infected, bird mites can infest the structure, putting humans at risk of bites.

Bird mites prefer feeding off of birds, but if none are around, they may infect people's homes and bite them instead. This often happens if birds are found nesting in the eaves of a house but then leave the premises when the chicks are grown. The mites venture into the house looking for a meal. If you have bird mites in your home, you might see tiny red dots walking around your house, on your walls, ceiling, and even your bed. Bird mite bites are very itchy. You'll see small red spots where the mites have bitten and injected their saliva. These spots may also swell. Bird mites don't care where they crawl, so they may even crawl on you, which is very irritating to some people. Their bites are often mistaken for scabies or lice.
