To explain My experience of having Chicken mite’s and what going through this ordeal has done to my life, and how to hopefully make you feel better if you too are going through the invasion of these parasites , Sharing how I am coping while going through the worst time of this infestation, an trying to get rid of these parasites. Everything we have learned has been from searching diligently on the internet, finding a little bit here and, a little bit there, but nothing in one place. Hopefully here on How To Get Rid of Mites, you will have enough information to walk you through a process of eliminating them.
How it Started
My husband and I love animals,we have chickens, ducks, dogs rabbits, and a Parrot named Joe, and in 2014 I got sick and got fired from my job, while Mark (my husband) was at work I took care of the animals, it was in the early spring the chicken hatched out a several eggs and it was still cold outside, well me being me, and my husband being him, brought them in the house so they would survive.
When those 8 got big enough to go outside and be ok in the cold, there were more, and again we brought them in the house. I noticed that one or two of the chicks were sick so; I nursed them best I could feeding them with eye dropper,and giving them water with my fingers, I wrapped one in a towel and laid it on the couch beside me, but it didn’t make it.
When the others got big enough to stand the cooler weather we took them out and put them in the pen with all the others.
It wasn’t till about a month later we fell asleep on the couch watching a movie, and I was awakened by the feeling of something crawling all over my face and in my hair, got up shook myself off, it stopped, so I sit back down, and got to watching the movie again and fell asleep, then it started again the crawling in my hair, on my face, my arms, it was awful. Got up went and took a shower, Mark (my husband) ask me what was wrong, and I told him, ask he felt anything and he said no.
We turned the TV off went to bed, I fell asleep and woke up again, this time it wasn’t just something crawling it was something biting me, felt more like a pin prick,(and some were very painful), got up with a few curse words and took another bath. I noticed these little red spots all over my chest. So I just stayed up. The crawling and biting continued the rest of the night, I wound up taking several baths, to no avail.
