A regular wash will not clean your clothes. They survive. Boil or iron your clothes, or you will continually get reinfected. Put the dryer on hottest setting and dry for a long time.

I sit here in this place, invisible mites jumping around my legs, thinking of the horrors of the past.

But, I'm still here.

Some thoughts.

UVA attracts them. Bug zappers (20w / 40w or the twin light ones used in businesses) are good for attracting and zapping them.

Air filters that use static plates and a UVC light work quite well. Stick one in a corner next to your bed, or in other locations where they infest. If the static plates don't kill them, the UVC will. eg http://www.tohealth.com.au/hybrid_ion-60.html or http://www.tohealth.com.au/hybrid_ion-mini_to... Air goes in, dust mites, bird mites and other irritants get zapped or trapped.
Hmm. Some models 'buzz' after a while. Normally this means that they need to be cleaned. UVC lamps in these last 6 months to a year. Can be run all night - most are whisper quiet.

Don't run the bug zapper all of the time in your house if it is in the main rooms. IF you do, though, put a 'hat' on it so that the UVA isn't constantly in your eyes.

You can wipe hard floors and your walls very effectively with a microfibre mop. Get a few replacement heads. A bucket with 250ml ammonia to 4L water kills anything picked up in < 15 seconds or so. The microfibre pads are easy to clean - toss it in the wash for a few cycles at 60 degrees.

Deltamethrin can *help* with a knockdown of adult mites. Delta Force Plus is good, but Deltathor Plus may also be just as good (and half the price).
I found that I needed to use it at twice the recommended rate, once per week, for 2 months to clear out a nasty nasty situation.

Get an IGR. Use it. Don't get IGR or Deltamethrin on you. Starycide works. Find epestsupplies places online, if they don't have Starcide or another IGR in their catalogue then send them an email asking for it. Expect to pay around $200 for 1L of IGR. Use IGR at the recommended rate. Always wear professional mask and eye protection.

If they continually infest a cupboard, a small UVC air filter or bug zapper can really help.

Go online and find UVA lamps, go to a local store and get a lamp base (match the germicidal lamp type to the base type). Install these UVC lamps behind your whitegoods - washer, dryer, fridge - and in other places which are hard to reach and clean.
WARNING: UVC will destroy your sight and degrade your skin very quickly. It is highly dangerous to all life forms.
Hence why I have at least one in every room and several in concealed places.. behind the fridge, under the sink, bottom of the kitchen cupboard, under the bed facing directly up... most of these on a timer so that the lights are off when I am in the room.

Since putting the UVA bug zappers and UVC filters and UVC lights in... this place has gotten to be a lot more tolerable. A LOT more tolerable.

I am seriously considering getting the largest UVC tubes and holders, some timers, and just letting them shine all day when I am not in the house.

A bucket with 200 to 400ml of ammonia to 3 to 4L of water, along with a couple of 'microfibre rags'(you can buy these by the bag from $2 shops) works really well for cleaning doors, walls, bed frame, any hard surfaces.

Throw out your wooden chairs. Get plastic stadium chairs. Easier to clean. Don't fall off.

Stand on a chair when getting dressed.

Wipe the kitchen table and put your clothes on the table before dressing.

Wash all clothes (that can be) in 95 degree water.

Always use a fabric softener.

A front loader can do a better job than a top loader machine - mostly because they can heat to 95 deg, and can do multiple rinses very well.

Always bag cleaned / dried clothes in plastic bags or zip lock bags.

Get your work clothes dry cleaned. When you bring the home, cover them around with a garbage bin liner bag, only take out what you need each day.

Put a UVC filter in every clothes closet.

Toss your chest of drawers.

Use plastic boxes to contain cleaned clothes.

Pull up and toss your carpet.

Move to a tiled house if you can.

Live in hope. Gluck.

Some final notes:
Read Shanspirations - http://www.shanspirations.org/...

Alcohol gel works very well for killing them and closing new wounds.

Mosquito 'zappers' or 'clickers' can work quite well to reduce the itch. They last for a while.

Neem oil can be very useful. If you are covered in bites, leave it on for a few minutes to reduce the itch and protect the skin for a while.

Soak your sheets, work clothes etc in KP 24 Soaking Solution. Expensive at $10 a bottle, but it works. One bottle for a 60L bin (filled to 50 L with hot water) can last for a week for soaking items.

A hot bath with 2 caps of Pinetarsol works wonders. Kills them, reduces the itch, helps healing the skin.

Serbitar is very good for cleaning hair.

Always add napisan (or similar soaker) to your wash.

Use NH3 ammonia. If it says something else on the bottle, then go elsewhere. You should be able to get 1L of ammonia for $1 to $1.50

Use baby wipes to wipe them off your skin. Very good when dipped with tea tree oil or similar.

A spray of tea tree (20 to 30 ml), eucalyptus (20 to 30ml) and lavender oil (5 to 15 mk) filled up to 500ml in a spray bottle can be quite effective as a repellent. Useful for spraying in shoes.

Leave your shoes lying next to your UVA bug zapper, with the shoes at 90 deg facing inwards to draw them out of the shoes and into the bug zapper. If anyone knows of a better way to clean shoes I am listening.

A suggestion someone previously had was to buy a 'UVC shoe cleaner'. I haven't tried this, but you can get them on amazon.

I have a wall mounted bug spray auto thing. I don't know how useful it is.

A steam generating device such as the H2O Mop 5-in-1 or similar should be useful. Currently in trial.

Throw out or put into storage anything you don't *need*.

Toss the curtains (if you can).

A UVC 'wand' is useful, but very tiring. Am thinking that my UVC 11watt light in its stand is far superior. Have to wear eye and skin protection though, whereas the wand is contained well enough that you can use it while naked.

Watch out for UVC reflection.. particularly from water.

Don't give up home. Hang in there.

Keep taking the ivermectin. Go on line and order some sulphur soap to use twice daily in showers. Go to www.cedarcide.com and order the white liquid Insect Repellant Spray (get a gallon) which you can spray on yourself, hair, and let it dry on clothing. Also there is a veterinary disinfectant that you can get but I can't say the name here so email me at [email protected]

thanks vieve1542! i think i am taking the ivermectin on a lower dose for my body weight i should take 15mg instead of 12. I am washing my clothes in ammonia and hot water (if you can call an apartment complex laundry room washer as hot!) and dry in high for 55 mins. I change my sheets and clothes every day, and wash everyday with the Dawn dishwashing liquid,(as suggested by someone on the other forum) and then spray myself with epsom salt solution with tea tree oil 1/5th conc.for both. This sunday will be my 4th wk taking ivermectin tabs and i will up it to 16.5 mg. I will make a 10% conc of the dog permethrin (which is the least toxic among the others) with Lubriderm lotion and put it on all over and wash ot 12 to 14 hours later. This i did last Sunday too but there was no effect. I will steam clean my car and have ordered a Haan SV60 carpet steam cleaner. Spray my carpet everyday with alternatingly with Sprayway from home depot and the epsom and tea tree concotion. Once a week with boric acid powder. I don't know what to do else! I have to get rid of this before I start. what should I wash my clothes with to be sure that they are didinfected properly? I have collected some of the black specks in tissue and sealed in sandwich bag to take to an infectious disease specialists so they can view the bugs at least. They are not vets so do not know much about zoonotic parasites on humans.

The major cause of allergies is the house dust mite. Millions of microscopic house dust mites live in beds and bedding and produce harmful allergens which can trigger an allergic reaction. Mitex manufactures as well as distributes a growing number of allergy relief products, we manufacture a complete range of Anti-Allergy Fabric Covers for Mattresses, Duvets and Pillows.

I ordered Ivermectin from Canada and used it about 3 times. it works better it you use the pills at the same time you use the Permethrin cream. Today I am free of bird mites. The pills are used according to body weigh. In addition to the cream and pills, I began taking magnesium, zinc, garlic, and B1 pills. Bird mites stopped crawling on me about a week after I began taking them. To get rid of the mites from my hair I mixed tea tree oil with olive oil and put it all over my head. I let it over night(used a shower cap). To eradicate the mites from the carpets, mattresses, and couches I ordered a Hann Steamer from QVC/model V300079. The steam is over 200 degrees and kills these annoying things. I washed all the bedding and clothes with ammonia, borax, and soap for several weeks. Every load of clothes was soaked for several hours and sometimes all night with hot water. I also used the hot setting when drying the clothes. It took me 3 months to get rid of the bird mites from my house and my body. I once felt like killing myself too. But I can tell you that it is possible to kill them. Today I am free and happy. If you need more ideas on how to handle bird mites let me know.

I just got my evaluation back from the USDA and they found part of a shell from a mite, bird or rodent, they weren't sure. I called and spoke with the guy and he said they were mostly fibers. But on a piece of skin was the shell casting. All this time I've been saving the black specs and they are nothing. That was unbelievable to me. The black things are coming out of my face. I've been to two derms and they say it's nothing. I'm so tired of all this, but I'm still hoping. I'm thankful for this forum, and have moved and gave up my car, clothes, bed, and sanity many nights. I'm still hoping and trying the garlic pills now. I did get one treatment of the ivermectin for a week, but then the doctor got scared I guess. I think that worked more than anything. I am doing bleach spray and wiping my body before bed with it. It keeps them at bay, wonder for how long?
The A&H with borax and ammonia in hot wash works.
Polyester clothes, roach prufe, raid ant and roach, home defense max. Sulfur works good, but it dries me out where I'm still scratching like crazy.
I'm holding out, it's been almost 6 months of this mite hell, but I'm still fighting.
I'm thinking about ordering the iver pills from Canada and taking them. Has anyone been healed yet?
I'm wondering about Fed Up, and Mike, and why doesnt the ones who are recovering come back to help us out of this darkness, if they have found the light. I won't say I'm sorry for rambling on as we all know here, we are tired for lack of sleep. I'm praying for us, have fought with God, and now I'm still hoping.

Mites and farmer tips
link
http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/birdmite...

I don't know where you people are from, whether it be city, or too far north to know this, but "mites" are nothing new, and there is nothing "foreign about them.

I was raised, and still live in Louisiana, which is called, "semi-tropical. " I was raised on a farm/ranch. There are so many different types of mites, that

bite, that I will not begin to try to list many; I will give a few examples. Warm blooded animals get lice; plants get lice; they are not the same type of

lice. the "lice" that infest your turnip green patch, will not bite you because it suddenly "got warmer" in the US. The mites and lice that infest your chicken

house, will not be satisfied with sucking on turnip greens; but they will crawl all over a human and give you the "itch" for many days after you have gotten

rid of the mites. There are "redbugs," picked up from walking through grass, brush, or sometimes dirt. They will burrow under your skin and make you want to

take a wire brush and shed your won hide off. There are seed ticks that will cover you from brushing against the wrong tree limb, or infest your living room

when you buy that "real" tree at Christmas. The "Mange" in dogs, or as we humans dislike having to call it, "Scabies," that will infest you and all your

pets. There are hog lice, chiken mites, Sarcopic mange, ring worm,(& scores of other funguses from cattle and horses and dogs), that humans can get. There is

the "creeping crud," a fungus, that sometimes does not show to the naked eye for months, but will make you claw until you bleed, usually starting at the

ankles and working up; it lives in the soil. While we back woods, country people may call all these vermin and varmints funny names, and we may seem

stupid to some, we know these critters you are talking about; they were here in the US long before you went overseas. It is just as possible that you caught it

from your Georgia tent mate when he returned from leave, as it is that you caught it in Iraq, or some other "hot" place.

We have put a couple of cap fulls of pine oil or bleach in our bath water for years; we have cleaned our houses with pine oil for hundreds of years. We have

dabbed pine oil, turpintine, and sometimes if desperate enough, coal oil, on redbugs,(and various other critters that attached themselves to us), to kill

them for hundreds of years. We have coated ourselves in various kinds of fats, mud, and paste to keep them off, and to kill them when they decided to live on

us anyway.

THe rest of the Farmers tips

We have put a couple of cap fulls of pine oil or bleach in our bath water for years; we have cleaned our houses with pine oil for hundreds of years. We have

dabbed pine oil, turpintine, and sometimes if desperate enough, coal oil, on redbugs,(and various other critters that attached themselves to us), to kill

them for hundreds of years. We have coated ourselves in various kinds of fats, mud, and paste to keep them off, and to kill them when they decided to live on

us anyway. We have bathed in baking soda, salt and epsoms salt to keep from itching; smeared paste from mustard, baking soda and tobacco to help. We have

taken the "skin" from egg shells and pit on bad bites, to draw the "itch" out. We have chewed on the sulphur ends of hard matches, and made a paste out

of "flowers of sulfur;" which bugs hate the smell of, and it keeps the bites from getting infected. One of the bad things about itchy bites, it all that
scratching and hot, blooding flesh, attracts even more critters.
As for borax; you can buy "20 Mule Team"borax powder; it's been around longer than any of us. We wash with it, neutralize orors with it, remove stains with

it, etc. Most of all, down here, we have been rubbing it on our meat in our smoke houses for ages; flies won't even light on it. we just wash it off when

we take it out to eat. I heard in the eighties, that they were "blowing" recycled, chipped up, news papers into the walls of old historical homes to

insulate them. Guess what they were soaking the news paper in prior to drying and chopping it up? That's right...Borax. Not only does it kill bugs, repel

bugs, repel rodents and prevent them from chewing and nesting in the paper insulation, but it makes the paper fire retardent. You can make your on roach

and ant bait with it by mixing it with flour and sugar, or just corn syrup and Borax. You can use it like carpet fresh, and you can wash your walls and floors

and counters with it; use it as a paste for scrubbing; just don't rinse it too well, and you will see a lessening of itchy critters. And for people that want

their clothes clean, but do not like fragrance fumes, etc., it's the best for your laundry.

If the varmints are eating your ankles up, mix some borax with your lotion or vaseline; it will repel them and has antibiotic properties

Summary :

Borax$3.99
Mustard 2.00
skin of egg $1.99 haven't tried that one yet
coaltar shampoo 5.99
pinesol $4.00
bleach .69
sulphur $12.00 www.Americarx.com
baking soda $1.00
tobacco $4.00
fats .01 off a steak
mud $.00
and make s paste

Pretty cheap ! And they work

Most all answers for mite killing are in this farmers post, they work, clean like you are a hospital , throw out things you dont need and will take more time to clean than they are worth. Get atleast 1 room sterile for a safe area, wash with a Arm and hammer powdered soap 1 cup per gallon an let sit fro daysthen rinse with 1 gallon of water an 2 cups windex. dry and paint the room , use a leave blower to blow borax in to the heat vents. Fog the house with a tri-jet fogger from www.cedarcide.com ($200.00) use borax water 1 cup per 1.5 gal of wate in it and 1 cup windex in the fogger , it saves alot of time , it kills everything in the room , repeat every 3 days for 1 month, it ended my bug problem big time.

God bless you ,

I think the bird mites and the scabies are now one and the same mutant, who learnt o survive outside the body for longer. London has an incredible population of birds and squirrels and they carry around this pest, the trees in the autumn become full of this thing which gets on hands like a very black looking smear but in a minute just disappears completely into the skin. It doesn't always itch either

Mary, since you don't get the burrows and rashes maybe you do have bird mites.
I read through some of the posts on the forum and think some of those poor people have scabies.
Thank you VERY, VERY much for this comment... that bird mite site makes me sick~! they just want to scare the heck out of people and make them feel as if it is hopeless to even try to fight them. the more I read, the more hope I have of getting rid of these things. the bird mite site did NOTHING to encourage me how to get rid of them short of using a little borax~

Have you actually seen the mites under a magnifying glass or microscope? I thought I had bird mites when I kept seeing black dots come out of my skin. But when I looked at them under a microscope, they were fibers--Morgellons, not bird mites. The way you treat depends on what you have. Two entirely different strategies. You can get a lighted magnifying glass at one of those big electronic stores at Fry's.

And yes, perm 45% is toxic to humans--regardless of what some radical self-appointed experts might say on this forum. I know of someone right now who is suffering very severe medical problems from some of the extreme treatment advice on this forum. Please consider this option VERY CAREFULLY.

manx88: what advice, and what is the medical problem?

If anyone is interested, I have been taking 1 12mg Iver for 2 months. I don't know if it is working or not.

I wipe the walls with a mixture of 50ml starycide to 2L water with a microfibre mop. Works quite well.

I wipe the tiled floors with a microfibre mop regularly with 300ml NH3 to 2L water. Works really well to clean the floors. I use two microfibre mop heads, and rotate them so the mites I pick up have time to die in the bucket. The NH3 water gets thrown out after every mopping session.

The windows coverings get wiped regularly.

For shoes I keep them in a box with a UVC light. I spray the shoes all round with my 30ml teatree/20ml lavendar/20ml eucalyptus oil to 450ml water in a spray bottle and wipe with a baby wipe them before putting them on of a morning.

I have two types of benzyl benzoate. I put Benzemul Application ($5 a 200ml bottle) on my skin when walking around the house - it really stinks. I put Ascabiol Lotion ($15 a 200ml bottle) on before I go outside - it smells, but not as badly as the B.Application. Takes 2 to 3 minutes to dry. Keeps all mites off the skin for up to 5 hours.

I put a layer of Benzemul Application on before I sleep. I no longer have problems sleeping.

I have a 500ml sprayer bottle with ~20 to 30ml of benzemul in it which I spray around the chair and desk to kill and repel the mites. When a botle of benzemul is finished I rinse it out into the sprayer.

All clothes are soaked if they are not being washed immediately. I put 10ml of pure eucalyptus oil into the water which helps kills the mites and doesn't destroy the clothes.

I have gone from the mites ripping all of my skin apart to having very few issues and containing the problem. I can now go out without worrying about infecting others. People around me don't get infected. Work and places I go are not infected. My home is nearly clean. The combination of microfibre mops to pick them up, NH3 to kill them and benzyl benzoate to stop them feeding on me is working. Life is so much better now. Almost back to normal.

Will update later.

I have read so many websites it has really CONFUSED me, so many people say they found bird nest in there attic, lightpost or in a tree next to there house.
This is my story, my sister passed away a couple of months ago, she was a bird hoarder, she had so many birds---AND chicken and ginnies, but NEVER in my wildest dreams did I think she could have had bird mites. I did have to help clean the house out and I did take her clothes, I had them stored in a utilty building behind our apartment, decided after a month to take them out and look at them, thought about selling them at a yard sale. I brought one box at a time, laying each piece across my bed. Several days later I felt them crawling all over me, I thought it could be maybe a fly, but it continued for several weeks, my family really thought I feel off the deep end. Till I pulled back my bedding and found them all over it, my daughter finally seen them and finally believed me, I showed my husband. since he never got bitten. We have sprayed everything we could think of, I was putting hand lotion all over me before I went to bed, that worked for a couple of nights, then I found OFF, that worked better and longer, only I had to get up several times to reapply. I read on a site that you can use ARRID EXTRA DRY, I did it, it was hard because it is so strong, it took my breath and this morning I still smelled it, but I guess it helped. We have sprayed Bifen I/T in the house and the attic, I thing its finally may be working. I still feel them sometimes, so we are going to try the ONSLAUGHT and STERIFAB, I won't let these things get me---like some of these other stories I have read.

Mary, since you don't have the rash but just red bumps, and you don't get bit during the day but you said as soon as the sun goes down you get bit up, I'm thinking it may be that you don't have a parasite on your body, maybe the bird mites or whatever mites are just biting you and going to hide during the daytime????????? Whaddya think?
I haven't a clue what you mean, as words are not spelled correctly. Is Spetra actually Septra? If so, the rest of the post is meaningless, because I cannot trust what you are saying. There are so many errors on the internet anymore that it is clear they're not simple typos. Poor spelling is a huge problem on the internet nowadays. Do they not teach spelling in school or do people simply not care?

Did this work permanently for you? Did you have to mop the walls. We have 3 kids and infant get everything laundered everyday. And it's hard to clean 2000 square feet every day. I'm cleaning everything out systematically. Taking IV. cleaning - I'm exhausted and feeling helpless.

Did you have little black pepper looking things coming out of your skin? The mites are really digging in and it hurts.

If you have Bird Mites you should especially consider the Albendazole / Valbazen protocol.
