Vetafarm Avian Insect Liquidator Concentrate – Why We Like It:
Vetafarm Avian Insect Liquidator Concentrate is an external parasite treatment for birds that contains a combination of Piperonyl Butoxide, Permethrin, and Methoprene. Piperonyl Butoxide is a pesticide synergist that helps the effectiveness of pyrethrins, including Permethrin. Methoprene is an insect growth regulator, it interferes with the growth and development of insects. All three ingredients are safe for use as external parasite control for birds, which makes this product a favorite among bird keepers. Avian Insect Liquidator is a good choice of treatment when infestations are proving difficult to control.
Here is an article about treatment of external parasites:
Lice and mites are parasites that feed on the blood from our avian companions. Treating with Avian Insect Liquidator provides instant control of pests on contact with a 6 week residual protection against reinfestation. Avian Insect Liquidator penetrates into the plumage of birds to kill mites and lice under the feathers and skin. This product is 100% safe to use on all ornamental birds and their environments.
Lice and mites can cause skin irritation, itchiness, powdery, flaky deposits and sometimes scabs. Severe infestation can result in other health issues such as anaemia, reproductive issues and immune system issues for your birds.
Avian Insect Liquidator was formulated by avian veterinarians to control avian lice (order Phthiraptera, suborder Mallophaga) in ornamental caged birds and their environment. Provides instant knockdown of mites and lice and 6 weeks residual protection of both birds and their environment.
Suitable for any situation where external parasites are a problem – including nest boxes, flights, perches, aviary floors, indoor cages and for direct application to the bird.
Directions for use:
Not to be used on birds producing meat or eggs intended for human consumption
