Chicken Mites on Humans?

Answer

Chicken mites on humans is not a common occurrence. Chicken mites cannot live on a human indefinitely like they can on chickens. Chicken mites need chicken blood in order to survive. If they are on humans, you will see them congregating around the nostrils as well as the eyes and nose. If you have chickens with mites and they die, the mites will go right to the next host which would be humans. Symptoms of bird mites on humans are intense itching, pricking feeling, and a crawling sensation on the body.
