Beaphar Insecticidal Bird Spray is a veterinary medicine for on-animal use. Contains Permethrin and is useful to clear common external parasites of cage & aviary birds. Contains sufficient spray to treat up to 100 small birds.
Active Ingredient: Permethrin 5g/l.
Hold the bird firmly and spray for a few seconds from a distance of 25-30 cm. Start at the rear of the bird and work towards the head. For small birds, use 1-2 pumps; for large birds, use 3-5 pumps. Spray against the natural lay of the feathers. Spray only the complete feather-deck (not parts of it). Do not spray directly on to the head or non-feathered parts. To treat the head, spray liquid on a towel or glove and rub it over the feathers. All birds sharing a cage or aviary should be treated at the same time. Ensure good ventilation during and after the treatment. Repeat if necessary after 14 days. It is recommended that a plastic glove is used on the hand holding the bird. If you wish the product to have residual activity, remove bath water as Beaphar Insecticidal Bird Spray is active for up to two weeks provided the birds do not bathe. Beaphar Insecticidal Bird Spray is intended for use on the bird itself. It is ideal if you have a lot of birds to treat as it contains sufficient for 50 to 100 small birds. If you are trying to control red-mite, remember that they mainly live off-animal in the aviary. A product like Beaphar Defest can be useful for discouraging crawling insects such as ants & is even strong enough to stop cockroaches.
