There are some sprays that can be obtained from your local
pet store that you can spray onto your bird, but first his
cage must be completed scrubbed clean (roof, walls, and
floor) and rinsed thoroughly with clean water. These red
mites suck the blood of your canary and can be very
debilitating. If I were you, however, I would seek the help
of an avian veterinarian, as some of the sprays can be used
incorrectly and can kill your canary. Please keep us posted.
