Birds nesting in roof eaves cause bird mite infestations

Birds can become a nuisance when nesting in the eaves of house roofs. They do this by gaining access to the eave through the edge of the tiles just above the gutter. Once inside the roof eave they have a sheltered environment safe from predators to begin building nests. This generally happens through the warmer months of spring and summer. Some species of birds nest several times throughout the season. Bringing large amounts of rubbish and debris into the roof cavity each time a nest is built. They damage buildings by defecating on eaves, gutters, window sills, pathways and driveways damaging the home and creating an unsightly mess.

Once the nesting has finished and the birds have flown from the nest. This is when the real problems start to occur. Parasitic bird mites that were feeding on the birdsin the nest no longer have a food source. As a result the bird mites then start to infest the home in search of a new host to feed on. They spread through the home looking for a meal. This means biting and feeding off the blood of the home occupants, their children and pets. As you can imagine this is not very pleasant at all. Thousands of bird mites causing itching, irritation and in some cases severe allergies through their numerous bites.
