Wow - We have been using those round protective mite killers for years. Does anyone else use them? I just place a new one in both Dickie and our new guy Denis cages this week since it seems Denis has mites. (Denis is quarantined in another room)

A few years ago I got one and that night when I covered up the cage for bed time, I noticed how strong and potent it smelled, and I threw it away!

I use Ivermectin, once a month, (a tiny drop) in their water dish and bath. I get it from my vet but you can buy it in feed stores. It works and it's not poison. Google it for more info.

I can't imagine this. I would never be able to sleep for fear of smothering them! Besides, who wants poopies in their beds!

But I have had a couple friends who have very large birds, and at times let them sleep in the bed with them. I still don't see it, but to each his own I guess!

One of these friends was my boyfriend, and he had this huge red parrot that he let have the run of the house most of the time. I was terrified of this huge bird and didn't know anything about any birds at the time. I would wake up and he (the bird)would be like, a foot from my face, staring at me!! Jeez, it scared the daylights outa me, because I DID know how their beaks had all this pressure that could take off your finger in a second!!
