Multiple studies prove otherwise, going all the way back to 1958, when an article published in a scientific journal documented finding human blood cells in mite intestines.

The only way those cells got there is for “bird mites” to feed on human blood. It is unfortunate that misinformation about mites has persisted for decades.

Leading mite experts such as Dr. Olivier Sparagano acknowledge that what we call “bird mites” can reproduce when they feed on human blood.

These mites can adapt to a variety of species, including us humans.
