As you now have realized, there are many "IDIOTS" on this
board as well as other boards. They can't help themselves,
they have nothing better to do with themselves except hide
behind their computers and make STUPID comments instead of
helping to answer a question. It's people like these that
ruin the forums for others.
As for your bird, get some Bird Mite Spray from the pet
store and use that as directed. It can't hurt, and can be
used as a preventative. Hope this helps.
