Common Types of Mites Within New York

Although there is a huge assortment of mite species throughout the country, exterminators in New York’s Metro area have frequent experience with these types:

Bird Mites

A very common issue in New York is the frequent nesting of birds or pigeons across rooftops of homes and office buildings. When these birds nest, they also carry parasitic pests such as Mites and Ticks which can cause major problems. As a direct consequence of the bird population in NYC, Mites are left behind as baby birds leave their nest. They are very, very small and require a host such as a bird, rodent or human to feed on.

They require blood to reproduce and are drawn to heat and moisture. Once their original food source is gone, humans quickly become a target. During daylight hours, Mites will hide in cracks, crevices and holes only coming out at night to feed. Once they get into your home or office, Mites will infest furniture, clothing, upholstery, curtains, drapes, rugs and carpeting.

Our Treatment Options for Bird Mite Removal In New York City

Migration of Bird Mites into your home or building is simple. Once baby birds leave the nest, they begin a search for a new host and will naturally find a way into your housing or building structure due to their microscopic size.

We take an intelligent approach in Bird Mite extermination by targeting their origination point. This is mostly the nest and found along roofing structures, ledges, and parapet walls. Any Bird Mites we encounter will be dispersed of properly and it’s important to note that they are unable to survive without a host after three weeks.

Our field technician will analyze your roofing structure in more detail to see if you have a consistent bird infestation problem. At Standard Pest Management, we specialize in bird control, relocation and deterrent solutions. So it may be worthwhile to consider having us install some type of system to prevent future birds from popping up and leaving Mites and Ticks behind.
