All the bird mite questions
There appears to be a growing problem with something biting people that nobody seems to have an answer for other than the common repetitious internet claim that bird mites can't live on human blood.
Ok, that's fine, then what is it? My wife and I have been suffering from some kind of infestation that bites, crawls, and has obviously traveled with us since we have moved 3 times in the past two years trying to escape the misery.
We have tried all of the recommended treatments several times with no success. We got rid of everything we own, been to countless doctors, used multiple pest control agencies and nothing works. We know we are not alone but there doesn't seem to be anyone who refers to themselves as professionals who do anything more than disregard the claims of many many people who are suffering. I don't
tend to believe in nightmare stories with no logical explanation but This is real. I would very much like anyone with any real information to reach me at my email firstname.lastname@example.org thanks for at least providing an outlet.

I know that it's easy to misunderstand such things and frankly if we were in opposite positions I would be probably telling you the same things.
In my case, at first I thought my wife was crazy and I basically dismissed it. Until they started biting me as well. We have actually caught a few of these little mites, we have had them looked at by supposed professionals the best we got was, yes it's some kind of mite.
As for the nerve pulses, I agree that I've had those at times as well, the difference is when bit, a day or so later a small bump appears that usually itces for several days or even weeks sometimes.
The reason I am writing is because there are what seems thousands of cases similar to ours but sometimes they seem a bit far fetched and worse, they never follow up with any kind of end result.
This has been life changing for my wife and I, let's hope it's not spreading although I don't understand how it's not.
As a part of my work I travel extensively staying in multiple hotels. Some hotels seem fine, others seem to already be infested. The same goes with rental cars as well as other locations. One night while trying to enjoy a show in Vegas I was virtually eaten alive.
There have also been cases while trying on new clothing that my wife had been attacked.
I know, it's crazy but I think that once you've become a host meal they seem to like you more.
All I can rationally think is that it's something relatively new to our part of the world, perhaps brought here by travelers or immigrants. Who knows, life is tough but we continue on.
Hope you never have to deal with anything like this. Keep an open mind.
