Bird Lice Prevention Tips
Bird Lice Control in Sydney starts with prevention. Here are some tips you can use to keep them out of your home:
Despite your best efforts, ants might still get into your space sometimes. Don’t beat yourself up about it; just call Active Pest Control Management for bird lice treatment in Sydney.
After getting your call, we’ll come to your home and perform a thorough pest inspection in Sydney. We do this to accurately determine the scope of the pest problem going on, which will influence our methods.
It’s very helpful if you can point out where you’ve seen pests or even where a nest is. However, we will still perform a full inspection of the building in case there is more than one source or nest. Occasionally, there may even be more than one type of pest that you didn’t know about!
Based on what we learnt from our inspection, we then decide on suitable countermeasures.
Everything depends on the severity of the infestation; the treatment may range from simply leaving traps or poison for the pests, to full-on application of pesticides and other more powerful treatments. Don’t worry about vacating the premises, thanks to our completely environmentally-friendly and non-toxic pest control solutions.
After a certain period, we’ll come back to check how effective our solution has been, resetting traps or reapplying pesticides if necessary. If treatment wasn’t as effective as expected, we always have several backup plans. We have a 12-month guarantee on any job, so rest assured that we’re going to stick around and get things done right, letting your property stay pest-free year-after-year.
Birds that have lice tend to preen and scratch themselves excessively due to the irritation. As the infestation progresses, their feathers may also appear damaged. The nuisance may also cause birds to be restless and aggravated, changing their behaviour.
Bird lice in Australia are not known to carry any diseases; irritation and swelling from their bites is just caused by their saliva. However, secondary infections may occur at bite wounds if bacteria spreads to it.
Bird lice cannot lay eggs in human hair, or on human skin at all. They also do not burrow under the skin. With only human hosts, the remaining bird lice will die off in a week or two.
