Chewing lice usually cling to birds and other pets. They feed on hair, feathers, and skin particles. They will rarely feed on blood unless there is already an open wound. Chewing lice can grow between 1mm and 5mm. They have small antennae and claws that help them cling to their host. Lice are wingless and are transferred through physical contact.
