she actually freaked out because a few years ago we let a bird build a nest
in the house gutter near the bedroom. the nest got mites and they got in the
house, specifically on my back. took 72 hours to get rid of them.
the lady who sold us the house told us this would happen but we didn't listen. every year the same bird (Eastern Phoebe) comes back and I have to tear down the nest daily for a few weeks.
