    Mite Prevention?

    How do you prevent mites? I have seen sprays and such but what do you all do to prevent mites?

    Re: Mite Prevention?

    If your keeping birds, indoors in clean environment, you do not need to worry about mites. The sprays, discs etc are toxic to your birds, and should not be sold. Itching does not mean mites, birds preen, and "itch" a lot to keep feathers nice.
    Scaly mites is a separate condition all together and cannot be prevented by toxic chemicals, but if caught early can be treated by your vet.
