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.
