General information of mites
Mites are small arthropods with two body regions, sucking
mouthparts, no antennae, and four pairs of legs. The life cycle of a mite
is generally composed of four active stages: egg, larva, nymph, and adult.
The life cycle usually requires one to four weeks and may result in huge
populations of mites under favorable conditions.
Bird mites are parasites that feed on birds. Sparrows,
starlings and pigeons are birds often associated with bird mite infestations
in buildings. Bird mites bite humans but do not possess a health threat.
That means they are not vectors of various deadly diseases. Bird mites
do not feed on stored foods, attack plants/household furnishings. They
will probably infest pet birds.
Generally, mites are barely visible to the naked eye. They breed on
the host bird (i.e., poultry, pigeons and starlings) and will leave the
body of a dead host to seek a new host in large numbers, and wander over
walls, ceilings and bedding. Bites from mites can cause itching and dermatitis.
They can survive two to three weeks away from the host.
Adult bird mites have four pairs of legs and appear
as barely visible red and gray, generally slow-moving and require optical
equipment for identification. Bird Mite irritations may be confused with
entomophobia (fear of insects). Mite diagnosis is often difficult because
specimens must be collected and identified by trained specialists before
treatment can be given.
Finding and eliminating bird nests in the house or building is the
first step in bird mite control. This is followed by spraying miticide
in the bird nest and its vicinity. Spray into cracks, crevices and corners
but not counters, cupboards and other such general areas.
Organic Fowl-Mite Miticide
(Safe on Food – Human – Environment)
Fowl-Mite is formulated as a miticide and is effective in controlling
all life stages of bird mites including the eggs, nymphs and adults. Fowl-Mite
is designed to provide excellent control to most species of bird mites.
Killing mode is derived largely from a natural food compound C9-H8-O. In
U.S.A, the Food and Drug Agency has approved its use as a food additive.
That shows the safety level of Fowl-Mite. It is safe on humans and environment.
