typically 0.5mm in length. They are oval in shape with 8 legs and have a sparse covering of short hairs. Transparent in colour, these mites are incredibly difficult to detect whenever an infestation arises.
These mites spend most of their life either on or very near to the host for survival. They will mostly be found under the birds feathers, until the infestation numbers swell to the point where the mites are knocked off into the nest and need to search further new host. Bird mites can survive cold weather when no host is available yet.
Bird Mite Behavior The mite feeds on the blood of birds and needs it host for survival. Despite the name, they have also been known to inadvertently bite humans and other animals as well. Once they engage with a host, they feed constantly and reproduce fast. A bird can suffer a mass infestation which can be detrimental to its health fatally.
Bird Mites Infestation Risks For humans, Bird mite bites may lead to swelling and a rash. The bite may cause intense itching and some irritation which is a result of the saliva they produce when they are on the human skin.
BIRD MITES / DUST MITES
Bird or dust mites also known as chicken mites, get their name because they are small parasitic arachnids that typically host on all variety of birds, especially chickens. They host on all bird species and only become a structural pest when they crawl from the birds and bird nests to structures and bite humans, pets and attack buildings. Usually, they will host on bird species and they only become a structural pest when they move from the birds and bird nests to the inside and outside of buildings. When their original food source moves or leaves the nest, they will migrate from that nest and begin to attack humans. Because they are capable of attacking people inside structures, they are considered nuisance pests. Bird mites are found worldwide.
Bird mites are tiny in size and most of the time they are not visible by the naked eye-invisible bird mites They are about .75 mm to 1 mm long. Their bodies are oval shape and typically, they are flat from top to bottom. They have a single dorsal shield and even though they taper at the rear end, their ends are not pointed. Bird mites are generally almost white in color when they are unfed. After they feed though, they change to a bright red color and as they digest, they change colors to a gray or will even turn black. There are hairs on the shield of the body and on the legs. They have four pairs of legs.
Bird mites are most active from dusk till dawn, but can be active at other times, especially when disturbed. Bird mites are very disruptive to our normal sleep patterns or resting, causing many nights of lost sleep. They tend to be more active on damp, humid, overcast days and nights. Mites are at times less active during daylight hours, and they are less active on hot, dry, sunny days. Their increased activity maybe at an interval of six days or so, when the new mites will mature. Bird mite populations tend to peak in the late spring and summer, corresponding to an increase in the bird population and an increase in temperature and humidity levels.
Bird mites undergo a simple metamorphosis. This means that they simply molt as they develop into fully matured adults. The developmental stages of bird mites include the egg, larva, two nymph stages (protonymph and deutonymph) and finally, the adult stage.
BIRD MITES CONTROL & MANAGEMENT
Bird mites females lay eggs in batches of about 7 eggs in available cracks and crevices in bird nests or the poultry houses. If bird mites invade inside structural buildings, they will lay eggs in cracks and crevices around and inside the structure of the building as well. Larvae only have 3 pairs of legs and as they molt into nymphs, they develop the last pair of legs. Although larvae do not require a blood meal before they molt into a nymph, nymphs require a blood meal before each molt into the next developmental stage. Also, females require a blood meal before they are able to lay their eggs. Under all favorable conditions, the full developmental period can last for merely 7 days. Once they have fed, adult bird mites can survive for 4 – 5 months without feeding again.
BIRD MITES ORIGIN & PERVASIVE SPREAD
Bird mites are such a nuisance in that they are not limited to just birds as a host. Once their original host has moved away, bird mites will invade the indoors of structures to find a new host to feed on and typically, humans are the next choice.
Dust or bird mites, usually problems only occur when birds build their nests on roofs of homes or in trees that are very close to the structure. Some of the typical bird species that are involved or leave traces of bird mites are sparrows, pigeons, starlings and chickens. Due to their size, it is easy for bird mites to enter a building. They use window frames, cracks in the attic and ceilings, and other cracks and crevices that are on the exterior of walls.
BIRDS NESTING CONTROL
When humans are attacked by bird mites, they cause an aggravating skin irritation that may look like a rash or a cluster of red bumps or welts. Moreover, several disease pathogens have been recorded that are carried by bird mites. Although the mite’s role in disease transmission and development is still not clear and even unknown, there have been positive experiments that show signs of disease transmission from bird mites.
