Bird mite or any kind of mite doesn't have fibers as a symptom. Go to any entomolgy website or valid medical site. These people are lost.Hi Canuckette
people at the www.birdmites.org forum are trying the absorbing JR and getting good results. one had the fibers come up and out of the skin on hands and feet, they first took a bath in 1 cup borax and 1 cup arm and hammer powdered laundry soap for 30 min , then after applied absorbine JR to the bad spots and many fibers came out of the skin.
Let me know of anything you find that kills this bug.
Many said Lysol multi purpose cleaner works on the environment , 1 cup per gallon of water sprayed on ceilings and walls. I like arm and hammer powdered soap 1 cup per gallon of water better
God bless you Canuckette ,
