What Are Bird Mites?
Commonly found living on the skin of avian animals, including chickens, these tiny insects have been named bird mites. They are fully capable of making their way into our homes and causing problems even though a bird might be the original host of the pest.
It doesn’t mean bird mites aren’t still a pest for us to deal with, even though they do not rely on human blood for survival.
Bird Mites and Humans
Although bird mites cannot survive on human blood, they can still bite humans and cause minor complications. Thankfully, the bite of a bird mite is typically harmless. The primary source of further complications comes from a secondary bacterial infection due to skin breaking from constant itching.
Symptoms of a bird mite bite in a human are common to most other insect or mite bites and include:
- Crawling sensation on the skin
- Small red bumps
- Itching (may be severe)
