Answer

Mites (Bird)

Hello,

 You wrote to a reader "should you use apple cider vinegar and olive oil rubbed in you can repel bird mites." What do you mean by "use" apple cider vinegar? Meaning, how so? Thanks

Answer 

When mites invade your skin, olive oil can often destroy them by rubbing in the oil. Apple cider vinegar becomes a soothing agent as well as a repellant. This is only a stop gap. More important is ascertaining the mite species, and addressing the source, and, or presence within the home, or outside on exterior surfaces.

Thanks for your question Rachel,

Regards, George Manning
