Control

In residential property, mites can usually be traced back pigeon or sparrow nests in or on the building. Remove the nests and dust insect powder around the nesting sites. Remember to dust the cracks and crevices. If the treatment is not thorough there is a risk that the mites immediately migrate and spread further into the building. In living areas, etc., a bug spray is recommended (e.g., with I + II, pyrethrin and piperonyl butoxide).

For caged birds used the same type of bug sprays or powders with pyrethrins and piperonyl butoxide. Remember not to treat the birds, but rather mites’ hiding places. If you want to use non-toxic controls, perches, etc. can be rubbed in paraffin.

In humans. When near red mites, applying a mosquito repellent may help. Protecting yourself with insecticides does not make sense
