Although bird mites rarely cause more than slight skin irritation in humans, they pose great danger to a variety of birds, including pet birds and poultry. Those wishing to remove bird mites from a home or farm often attempt methods such as the application of insecticides. While this method may temporarily prove successful, infestations will resurface after surviving specimens begin to breed again.
Proper identification of the pest is crucial to the success of our custom pest control solutions—the process goes beyond just an extermination procedure. Improper identification can render all control efforts useless.
It is also necessary to locate and discard all nests of pest birds in the affected area. Nests are commonly found in eaves, chimneys, roof spaces, window ledges and small cracks or cavities in walls. However, all state and other governmental regulations must be followed, since certain species of birds are protected and specific actions may be limited. On poultry farms, all nesting materials need to be replaced.
Nesting areas may also require application of appropriate pesticides, applied according to laws and labels, to ensure removal of bird mite populations. Repair of creases in walls, eaves and ledges may discourage further nest building. These procedures should be undertaken on a regular basis to ensure effectiveness. For best results, contact your local pest control professionals. They know how to deal with bird mite infestations in the safest, most effective manner.
