I believe they survive without a host. I was reading about this 1800 professor/biologist that was proving this theory. I have tabulated, recorded, and kept daily records, and mites have adapted to the environment and do not need a host to survive. The scaly body mites in my body extracted one way or another by my own natural methods, look old, wrinkled and decripate compared to the more recent mites within the last year.
Ive commented before and many health body changes atributed by doctors to be my thyroid or age changing skin, are not. The buldges and engorged breasts have diminished and slowly my skin is returning to my normal skin. The gasey smokey fecus is less and returning to my known fecus normality.
who="Mary"]Was reading the bird mite website and these mites can live a very long time without the host. They also can feed off of humans and not just birds.

Although parasitic bird mites need a host mammal to survive and reproduce, research has shown they can survive for extended periods without a host. One Swedish study reported D. Gallinae can live nine months without a host. Several other studies confirm that they live at least eight months without feeding. NFM can live several weeks without a host.

I have read posts on this forum where someone has opened a suitcase after three weeks, and felt mites crawl on them. Another one posted wearing a shirt after a year, and got mites on them. Sam, maybe you are right. Maybe there is a mutant mite out there, or those people may have had bird mites or rat mites. Every time I read a new website, it drives me nuts. This bird website says that the permethrin doesn't work on bird mites; neither does the ivermectin.... auggghhhh!!!

Permethrin kills "everything". Maybe by drowning but eventually it kills all bugs even some mammals such as cats.

Hi
did you get rid of the bird mite? I have analyzed it! they also told me they were only fabric. I am going crazy!

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.

i'm pretty sure mine are either bird or rodent mites. And from reading the first page, the mites i have do last at least a year without a host and are highly contagious on clothing. We use borax to wash everything which kills them but nothing else does, not even hot water.

i've tried most things and i'd strongly reccomend people get the Valbazen cure. Its the most dramatic difference i've felt from everything i tried and very easy. I'm just real worried about them building up a resistance to it.

So you are cured? And it was only by cleaning your environment? Your post is not helpful.

There are over 800 species of bird mites, and many spiders of the same family of aracnids, and they all share a common pheromone pattern. 96 percent of bird mites are female, attracted to males, and uses pheromones to call mites, and spiders, and predatory insects to me. I've awoke to insects of different sorts chewing on me,(chasing the food in my pores) and leaving lesions large and small.
The ones I've contacted live in the pores and hair follicles, and I believe spin webs over the opening to protect themselves from attack, from liquids, powders, and predictors.
They may carry bits of lint into these liars to form a nest (like birds do) The webbing and nesting material are the, "filaments" Morgellons suffers see.
Further, it is claimed that bird mites cannot breed from human blood, but after eating chicken or turkey, I notice some few days later, an outbreak of uncommon proportions. If these mites are allowed to continue progressing in this way, I imagine that they will eventually developed a strain of mite that can live and breed off of humans, and why not? We're abundant, easier to catch than birds, and are allowing Morgellons suffers to suffer these bird mites long enough for evolutionary genetics to develop.
American Indians were bird hunters, and used the nicotine in tobacco to kill bird mites as tobacco is a powerful pesticide.
I believe the cure for Morgellons, bird mites, and scabies problems is going to be limited nicotine OD, topically, internally
and respiratory. And this would insure the elimination revolutionary progression by these mites toward animals and humans.
And I would gladly volunteer for the test dummy spot, of controlled nicotine OD ing. Sure be glad to get rid of these pricks and their company. Thanks

bird mite, morgellons disease, and scabies cure.

There are 800 different known bird mites, the smallest of these causing Morgellons Disease, and scabies is of the same family line, all of which share the same pheromone pattern.

96 percent of bird mites are female, attracted to males, and uses pheromones to call mites, and spiders, and predatory insects to me. I've awoke to insects of different sorts chewing on me,(chasing the food in my pores) and leaving lesions large and small.





The ones i've contacted live in the pores and hair follicles, I believe they use their front legs to open the pores and follicles, and crawl in to set up their burrow. And I believe spin webs over the opening to protect themselves from attack, from liquids, powders, and predictors.( that's why the predators chew through the skin, creating lesions. They may carry bits of lint into these lair, from clothing, to form a nest (like birds do) The webbing and nesting material are the, "filaments" Morgellons suffers see.

Well, it seems nicotine treatments are not approved by whomever runs the medical profession in this country. So, I got no help. But nicotine is not illegal, and I wish you luck on your treatments.

Hi, I got bitten on my head overseas and 3 days later I felt mites crawling in my head. There were pigeons nesting outside my windows so know they are bird lice that has gone internally. Had it for 7 months now. Gone to 10 Dermatologists and still have the eggs that keep hatching. Tried Ivermectin nothing is working. Does anyone know what kills bird lice eggs. I have dug them out of my skin it is tiny white things. I don't see these mites on the skin but get the crawlies internally and rashes appear on the skin. I had scabies years ago and this is different. Regina B

What is Valbazen? I have tried everything and even waited awhile to use more creams, etc, thinking it was post-mites reaction...noope...these things came back even stronger. So please explain Valbazen cure. Thx

Many birds steal materials from field mice nests, a know carrier of many mites including scabies. I once contracted scabies from a birds nest, the material was most likely scavenged materials.

I have tried the 44% permetherin when I was in my experimental stage. Here's what I use to get cured from the hardest mites.

#1 I shaved my head and coarse body hair. no matter what I did, mites came down from my hairline, so off with it = cured.

#2 Use ichthammol 20% lotion as an indicator/reducer. I put this stuff all over my body and bald head, Ammonium Bituminosulfonate 20% sold as a grooming aid for horses. I buy the 14oz tubs from a vet supply store online. I mix in two pesticides, fipronil and Insect Growth Hormone (IGRs), the common ingredients found in frontline plus, they can be bought in bulk. Before I apply I take a very cold shower, till my skin tinges blue. this conditions the mites, makes them hungry for treatment. I keep the lotion for at least 3 hours and wipe it off with paper towels. I would also keep it on longer even keeping it on overnight sleeping on plastic. It becomes a bit runny if its hot so I run the AC to cold, and rub it around when it runs a little.

Icthammol is a drawing salve, which is the intended effect. Mites will be drawn to the top of the skin and will create many little bumps. Icthammol also draws out mites food goo, but if you keep it on long enough it will kill them through starvation, and will draw many into the paste.

I recommend using this method because it will identify all the areas where mites live, even in clear skin where no mites appear to live, icthammol will reveal their hidden location, and now I know where to treat.

I have not had success using icthammol alone, what has happened in my case is the numbers are reduced and the mites retreat into deep tissue areas, like behind knees and elbows. That's when I switch to war paint paste.

I have also used icthammol as a set-up to permetherin and PBO treatments, but I find that mixing the two designer insecticides into the ichtammol directly is quicker.

Ichtammol is messy, I pick a nice old wooden chair and I watch a movie, when it is done, I wipe off the tar.

#3 Permetherin plus PBO - I use 13% Permetherin from Southern States farm store. It has a special punch to it. I mix in Piperoynl Butoxide (PBO). This is a synergist that allows permetherin to penetrate the skin as the skin becomes resistant to permetherin with out it. I mix twice the PBO as a percentage and apply to the known areas. For a first time infestation, I do a full body application.

#4 Wart freezer - I use the wart freezer applicator for any big hard blisters. these are the egg carriers, and the freeze applicator has salicyclic acid, the only thin I have found effective against eggs. It would not be smart to use this on every blister, but for the main egg holding blisters only I use this method.

#5 Benzyl benzoate - is a substitute for permetherin, this is good for at-work applications because it does not smell. I use it at work, but it is a solvent and my fingers stick to anything plastic. I keep a good supply of paper towels handy.

#6 War Paint by Chem Tech - I use war paint after reducing the numbers with icthammol, it is a sticky paste that captures mites like a glue trap. It also has 7% permetherin and 14% PBO. It is a slow kill method that works excellent on hard to kill small mites. I have to take 5-7 days off work for this method, clothes will wipe it off the skin. It remains on the naked skin all day, a great sticky covering. I have witnessed mites when they emerge leaving a little white formation where they get trapped. For the hardest mites, this is my go to method, available online or in farm stores. Southern States permetherin is a great solvent for war paint, it is very sticky. Wiping it off is a challenge.

#7 Vagisil maximum strength creme - I got a yeast infection on my body from not changing plastic sheets nightly. It also numbs the skin.

I lived in a house that had a mouse & mite infestation. I still have the scars from scratching. I moved, but kept feeling a crawling and biting sensation. I figured that I had taken along stragglers even though I had discarded everything from that house and started over with new clothes and everything. Long story short, I had a dermatophyte that mimicked the same horrible crawling feeling of the mite infested house. Dermatophyes normally live on our skin and they're numbers are kept in check by our own skin. I had an overgrowth, an abnormally high number, because I had used so many harsh products on my skin--from Borax to Dawn detergent. The Chief of the Dermatology Staff gave me this diagnosis and I trusted her title & her explanation that only mild soaps and products INTENDED for skin can be used on the body. I am writing this because it seems like some people on this site are taking a scortched earth approach to relieving their skin irritation. Some of you may have stripped your skin and caused a dermatophyte overgrowth. Fight the bugs in the environment & unleash heck on them, but baby your skin because it is your first line of defense against the microbial world.

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.
You can ask the county to inspect your house for a nest hidden somewhere. I did that. A nest that could have a bird with mites. I did that. He didn't find anything though. I think I had dog lice and hair lice the first time, Scabies the second time. Docs can't diagnose anything. I know! I've seen over 50 docs. Only an eye doc can and has diagnosed it, SAW it on my face, and they can't do anything because they aren't a dermatologist.

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.

I live in Scotland United Kingdom. This is my fifth year of being reinfected with bird mites. They always seem to be in my bedroom. Last year I ripped everything out the room and got new furniture new bed wooden flooring the lot. I have always treated everything with steam and ammonia. I thought I had finally got rid of them but here we go again. It's really getting to me . I don't understand why I have them for about 8 weeks and then they disappear until next year. Can anybody help
