Hello,
We have had to evacuate our house due to some kind of invisible mite infesting our clothes and body.  It's been incredibly challenging.  We think it is bird mites from rescuing an injured hen.

Any experiences out there?

Firstly you need to make sure you have mites, not bed bugs or some other critter.

this... http://www.idph.state.il.us/envhealth/pcmites.htm

indicates that extensive vacuuming, low humidity and abrasive dust (DE) could all be effective in getting rid of mites if you determine that is what you have.
