Facts About Bird Lice
Bird lice or bird mites are small parasites that feed on the blood of various wild, domesticated or poultry birds such as chickens, sparrows and pigeons. These parasites normally remain on the birds, breeding at an alarming rate. They canalso be deposited on nests and poultry houses and even thrive on roofs, ceilings, wall cavities, ventilators and other areas where they crawl in search of food.
Bird lice measure 1/64 inch long, have eight legs and a soft yellow or green body. They turn bright red when they fully feed themselves of their hosts’ blood. Adult lice can live up to 90 days. Usually active during spring and summer, bird lice or bird mites prefer to inhabit warm moist areas.
