Scaly Face mite and Air Sac mite are common infections in ornamental birds such as budgerigars, finches and canaries. Regular flock treatments may be necessary to control infestations in cages and aviary birds.
Scaly Face/Air Sac Mite: Apply 1 drop to birds under 30g (1oz) body weight and 2 drops to birds 30-100g (1-4oz).
Place drops onry. the skin of the thigh. Treat all birds in the aviary
“Drop On” Air Sac Mite Treatments need to be given every 21 days for 3 months. Thereafter, 2-3 times per year. Because the mite can roam free in the aviary, a whole aviary, clean down and spray with Avian Insect Liquidator, F10 Surface spray must be done immediately after treating the birds. If treatment is not rapidly effective, there may be a Respiratory Infection, not the Air sac mite.
