Vetafarm Scaley Mite Treatment (Avimec) 50ml
Avimec can be applied anywhere on the birds skin. We recommend application to the thigh area, giving you an easier place to access and a larger surface area when dealing with smaller birds. Applying to the back of the neck is viable, but can be difficult to access and increases the chance of stress due to mishandling of the bird.
As the burrowing mites only live on the body, it is not necessary to treat the cage itself with a mite-spray. Many of these agents are highly toxic and can harm your birds!
Burrowing mites are harmless to humans, so there is no risk of an infection, the mite however is infectious to birds and must be contained, and you can only do this by treating all the birds in your aviary. If you need to spray your aviaries with an insecticide, use a product formulated to be safe such as Avian Insect Liquidator.
Dosage & Administration: Birds less than 30g body weight apply 1 drop, Birds between 30-100g body weights apply 2 drops.
Repeat application weekly for three doses. Place drops on an unfeathered area of skin.
Treat all birds in the aviary. Full recovery may take up to 6 weeks.
