Has anyone had bird mites in their home?
I've got an infestation of bird mites in my house and they are absolutely driving me mad.I can not sleep at night because my bedroom is crawling with them.In fact as I type this they are crawling up my legs!! I've tried bug sprays,bombs,fogs,nothing seems to kill them.I called the pest control guy and he just about laughed in my face,then told me $4500 for a complete fumigation job.Out of the question, too much money.Has anyone any suggestions besides burning down the place??

Yikes! You could try a systematic cleansing of your house, room by room and keep the clean rooms sealed from the still bugged rooms. However, I doubt you'd be able to get every bug and eventually they would come up in full force... More

We had them for a while when I got rid of an empty bird nest on our patio. Try washing all your clothes, linens, etc, like when people get lice, also, borax sprinkled in the carpets or the product called "Fleabusters" might work. You can probably get this from a pet store or pharmacy.

I had another type of mite once before, so I know how frustrating that can be. This site seems to have some good info on it: http://birdmites.org/index.html Good luck!

BORAX works great sprinkle some of that "20 mule team " on the bed, carpet, floor...And watch those buggers die die....It causes them to not be able to breath... PS it kills fleas, Dust mites, cockroaches and bed bugs too
