I decided to buy this product to use on my love bird. It has had this feather problem for a while now. I was happy to see that it arrived so fast. It has helped very much. Highly recommend.

I really like this spray in that I can use it around my 2 parakeets. They are condo/city birds that don't get any mites or lice but I use it around their cage to keep small roaches under control. The active ingredient (pyrethrins) is a more natural and less toxic insecticide. You do have to spray the roaches directly but it is very effective in killing them and I'd rather do that than leave any lingering residue from stronger pesticides around my birdies. I did have occasion to use it once on a wild baby bird I rescued that was FULL of these tiny yet visible black hair-like mites (if that's what they were). I wrapped the little bird's body in a soft towel that I had coated w/ the spray and also sprayed it around the outside of its box to catch any more that might try to crawl away. It worked beautifully & very effectively with no ill effects on the baby bird, or me or my parakeets for that matter. My ONLY complaint is that I WISH the company would put a BETTER SPRAY-TOP on these bottles. It's hard to get these to spray evenly or very accurately sometimes. And it tends to drip around on your hand when you spray it once you've been using that bottle for a while. Need to be sure to wash your hands after but it's still better than more caustic chemicals on your skin.

I read in researching where it said not to use this on your birds. Another place I read birds are very resistant to this ingredient and it won't hurt them. I did use it however with no bad affects on my Mexican Double Yellow Head Parrot. Have not used it on cockatiel yet though, but plan to. Our entire family has been hit with parasites after moving to the mountains with my Mom. It seems we got them from the friendly forest creatures we feed such as squirrels and birds. Such is life. Anyway, I discovered that the main ingredient in the cream as Dr.'s gives human for scabies, etc. is teh main ingredient in this product. I am wondering if this can be used on humans for a very short period of time. Hum... The amount in the bird spray is minimal. You have to be sure to spray the bird from the back so you won't get it's eyes or nose, very carefully. Don't overdo it. Mites can be so terrible for a bird to endure. i would rather spray them than let them suffer. I had noticed my birds scratching more, not preening. I'll keep using it on them and their cages until it stops. Please, remove food and water before spraying the cage. Sometimes things we don't think of can cause a disaster.
