What You Need To Know About Bird Mites

Also known as starling mite or tropical fowl mite, a bird mite is a tiny eight legged parasite that feeds mainly on the blood of its host. This barely visible organism is flatly shaped and translucently white in color. However, when a bird mite infest on blood, it could turn to a brown/red color. Due to the smallness of its size and shape, the bird mite is often been wrongly referred to as ‘bird lice’. Although, bird mites are classified under a group of arthropods because they share the similar morphological resemblance, they however differentiate widely in habits and ecologies. Botanically, bird mites are known as Ornithonyssus bursa and are derived from the mites’ family of Macronyssidae.
