What is the best way of getting rid of houseflies that won’t affect my kakariki or 2 cockatiels? I know I could get them Venus fly traps but are they toxic to birds? What about the blue lights things???? Please help
I've never tried it, but I've heard that coins in water hang up in a bag confuses the flies, as flies have multiple vision, the coins look like many more and flies don't like to get wet, so they keep away. According to this video, it looks like a swarm of bees to the flies, so they keep away.Jam jar filled with water and approx. 20 x 2p shiny copper coins lid on. we keep 1 on the kitchen window sill and 1 each at our two back doors.
Don't know why but it works for us, just the odd one now and again.
That's a problem with quality hun! Buy less at a time?I occasionally get a fly problem, I assume when an apple gets tossed by a parrot into an unreachable corner.......
Can you move the parrots to another room or aviary? If this is the case - clear the room and blast the hell out of the flies with good quality fly spray. Then its just a matter of opening the windows and let the air clear. You will need to clean the cages obviously - I take them outside and jet them.
My problem is moths! About half way thru a sack of seed I get clouds of little brown moths.
I last used these a decade ago when @JessCheekyMia cockatiel Cheeky flew into it and got all stuck to it. Luckily a good shower was enough to remove the fly paper. After that, fly paper was banned from our home.Traditional and old fashioned fly papers?
It's quality over quantity every time hun with birds, anything that risks illness is a NO, NO! Think how much it is saving in vets bills as another way around to buying smaller but better quality? Also check your keeping conditions, is it too humid? Check for mildew also!Yup yr right, I do buy big sacks for value - Maybe once Mac is here i’ll be able to get thru the bag quicker rather than downsize.
