birdmiteOnly relatively few species are on humans or other animals, such as rodents and birds, especially found around nest sites, while others are damaging pest of plants or decaying animal or plant matter.

Mites are not an insect, they have no antennae, they do have 8 legs, and their head and thorax are fused into a single region called the cephalothorax. Most mites are so small they are barely visible to the naked eye.

In the case of Bird Mites, they are usually found where a nest has been abandoned, so the mites are leaving the nest in search of another host. The first thing that needs to be done in controlling bird mites is to remove any and all nests from the area.
