Red Mite and Lice

Mites & Lice are the two most common external parasites of pigeons.

Mites living on the pigeon drink blood and other bodily fluids. Pigeons are also infected by mites living in the loft environment, hiding in cracks and crevices, particularly during the breeding season, below nest bowls and within nesting material, only moving to feed on your birds and nestlings at night.

Lice live off feather debris and bloom on your bird and die quickly once they do not have a live host.
