Can Bird Mites Infest Your House?

If you notice bird mites in your home, it is most likely because your home has become a bird-heaven.

Where Do Bird Mites Live?

Bird mites will most often make their home with those they are feeding on, in the nests that the birds create. These can usually be found in chimneys, eaves, negative space in roof tiles, window ledges, and patio covers. Bird mite populations can grow extremely quickly, with eggs hatching in as early as 3 days after laid and adults maturing in 5 days.

Do Bird Mites Live on Humans?

Bird mites do not necessarily pose a threat to humans, but they will bite and cause itchy, tingly irritation. Unfortunately, they can cause major problems for pet birds or poultry and outdoor chickens or other birds kept for eggs. Luckily, bird mites cannot survive or reproduce on human blood sources, so they can be eradicated by eliminating their hosting sources.
