Knocking Down Tiny and Itch-inducing Bird Lice (Bird Mite)

Have you ever experienced a sudden itch when you are enjoying free time outdoors? If so, you might be bitten by bird lice. Bird lice or bird mites as others call it is preys that are naturally found in birds. They usually exist when birds vacate their nest. Though birds are their hosts, they can jump to feed on other animals such as rodents, cats and dogs and have the possibility to feed on humans as well. However, these pests are self-limiting as they can only live for a short time period.

Bird lice (or bird mite) should not be taken lightly. Even if you don’t have a pet bird in your home, you can still encounter these pests. They’re tiny creatures capable of biting humans and pets and induces annoying itch. It is possible that your home and environment may have bird lice infestation when birds out are roosting nearby.

Here are some fast facts about these bird lice:

  • Their appearance are nearly alike to ticks and human lice they’re quite small about 1mm long.
  • Best described as moving pepper grounds.
  • They have a short life cycle of seven days however they have the ability to reproduce fast and effective at plaguing a host.
  • These pests’ diet is purely blood and they feed on birds such as pigeons, starlings, sparrows and even poultry.
  • They are small but they are terrible for they can make a complete poultry sick most especially young and old birds.
  • Though they are not known to transmit diseases, their itch-induced bite can cause secondary infections because of scratching.

Although they are self-limiting and can rarely survive if they host on people, the chance of people getting in contact with the insect is simply fair. You can experience bird mite infestation if you will find roosting birds nearby and are building their nests on trees, roof tops, window ledges and even an ac unit.

Ben is an absolute gentleman. Extremely polite and courteous and was very thorough in his work. He even took the time to explain different aspects of his job and the various insects and how he gets rid of them. Absolute champion. Hoping this will be the start of a long relationship with Andrew and his Local Pest Control team. Cheers.

Where are they found?

Bird mites love humid or wet conditions and they are very busy for the duration of spring and summer seasons and are evidently observed where birds and their nests are placed.

When spring and summer come, they’re very active and are voraciously preying on birds.

They hop from 1 host to another and they have higher odds of entering the household when they are able to host on rodents and pets. These creatures likes to crawl and can enter the living rooms, climb on walls, ceilings and lurk in the bedding.

Spotting Bird Lice Infestation

As mentioned earlier, bird lice infestation is very critical and requires proper identification. Since this pest is almost looked like ticks and bed bugs, home owners usually find assistance from pest control professionals. The best approach that you can do though is investigating your area for presence of nest and then reporting it to the experts. However, ponder on this warning do not attempt to remove yourself to prevent risk of bird mite move to other areas.

To spot possible infestation, check for nestings around:

  • Roof and in stacks
  • Roof spaces
  • Wall cavities
  • Basements
  • Window sills
  • Porches

If there’s one DIY method you can do to prevent the infestation, that is installing high fences on your environment. The presence of high fences can block birds from entering your area and build their nest. You can also start sealing and fixing roof cavities and other entry points that bird lice can crawl into.
