Mites in San Diego County are getting progressively worse. Just this year alone, Bugs Bee Dead has helped dozens of Homeowners with Bird Mite control.
Bird Mites will come inside looking for a host (usually people). Bird Mites crawl onto the skin and conduct an exploratory "test bites". The mites will move on, biting the person again every few inches.
These bites are have been described as a “pin prick” sometimes resulting in a rash or itching. The irritation produced by the bite can be very intense. The mite’s saliva sometimes causes a extreme allergic reaction that can last for days.
People have reported that it feels like they are still getting bitten or they can feel them crawling on their skin for days or weeks after the mites are gone. Some people have reported that the bites get very irritated between the sheets in bed at night.
Generally, young mites cannot survive more than twelve days without food, while adults may survive over two months without a blood meal. Mites are very small and difficult to see.
Controlling mites relies heavily on proper identification, and removal of any bird nests on or near the structure. Bugs Bee Dead has years of experience and expertise in controlling mite infestations.
