Is this the northern foul mite? Please help me identify this awful creature. As you all know I've been battling lice and mites brought in from my new bird that was shipped to me. Today I decided to look under my microscope at these nasty creatures.this is my first time having any mites as my flock has never had them until now..I took a picture of the nasty under my scope in hopes someone could clearly identify the species of this mite. I suspect northern foul mite but would like a conformation on that from you as I'm not very familiar with mites..I know there are different species. Such as bird mite red mite northern foul mite ect. . Can anyone positively confirm the species of this nasty creature? ? Thank you kindly. I'm still battling but I'm making progress as they are no longer congergated on the body of my birds however I still have some on their crests. Thank you for helping.
