images of bird mites

Although we specialise only in bedbugs we occasionally encounter other issues, often when general pest control companies have failed to identify the source of the problem.  Sometimes this has been linked to  bird mites  which will ingress into a home due to the lack of their primary host.  They are often so small as to be described as walking “full stops” and are most commonly found in clusters at the wall ceiling junction.

They are a complex pest to deal with as access to the birds nesting area is needed and should only be undertaken following a thorough assessment of the whole area.

Please see the key facts below and the linked document which explains the issue in more detail.

Bird mites can seek out humans in the absence of the original bird host

It is not possible to diagnose the cause of a skin reaction, bite or otherwise

The risk of bird mites is massively reduced with quality bird exclusion

They are commonly seem in large numbers rather than 2’s - 3’s

The solution often starts where the birds were nesting and works back into your home

Bird mites do not leave faecal traces like bedbugs
