What are bird lice and what you need to do
The first question that strikes anyone is, what are bird lice? These are minuscule insects (about 1 mm long) with hairy backs and eight legs. They have an oval shape and white or grayish bodies that turn reddish after feeding. Like all other pests, they are nocturnal (active at night) and burrow during the day.
Bird lice, also known as bird louse or bird mites, live and breed on various birds and their nests. As soon as the birds leave their nest, they enter homes and commercial spaces in search of food. Moreover, their diminutive size and non-jumping nature make them masked and difficult to spot.
Usually, bird lice enter residential and commercial spaces in large numbers and rest on cotton and fabrics, as they’re perfect for egg insulation. However, although they’re present in large numbers, they are highly unnoticeable. As a result, they cause pinprick bites, lesions, itching, swelling, and a worrisome crawling sensation.
