I have gotten test results from vetdna that I have Dermanyssus Gallinae bird mites in my home. Treatment options? I have consulted birdmites.org for ideas. I thought it was fleas for 6 months until I found a blanket with tiny speckles on it in a trunk. It got really bad after Christmas. They have made me the host and target me. Not my husband or adult son. It is awful. I have tried Onslaught (not Fastcap as I didn't know the difference) and Crossfire. Just got Elector psp and sprayed once. Using Nygard IGR. Spraying again tomorrow. DE did nothing. Using essential oils and kleen green to clean with and use to keep them off of me. I have a lower immune system and mouth infection which is the root of all of this I think. Doing detox. We did find a Robins nest under the deck by the windows where I think they originated. Threw it out in February. Wondering if I need to treat our small attic space? Does bed bug foggers work? Purple box by Hot Shot is any other fogger work? Help! 12 months dealing with this!

A couple of questions:
1) Its almost impossible for mites to target you and not your husband or son. Are you sure you are the only one getting bit in the house?
2) If you are getting bit are there any noticeable marks, blisters, etc?
3) Who identified these mites?
