Review on dusting birds

The finer grade dust/powder is far more effective in treating red mite than the pet grade. Two reasons:

  1. When treating the birds the pet grade falls off their feathers easily, in clumps, whereas the finer grade holds and gets into hard to reach places such as under the wings, nail and claw, around the eyes and appears tp be less stressful to the birds as well. A lot of them actually enjoy it …
  2. The finer grade is easier to distribute in pens and nesting boxes, because can use easily with the puffer, whereas the heavier powder cannot be used with the puffer [even with the nozzle removed] and just plonks out in clumps.
