In our area of Maryland U.S.A., after fledgling birds leave the nest, it is possible for those mites to enter the home and bite people.... but they cannot live on people or in your home. Use your vaccum. Washing and drying your closes in a close dryer should remove any.
They do not enter your ears or body.
There are other things that can make it feel like you are being bitten, and those are detailed in this publication from Penn State University: http://www.extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/BitingMe.pdf
