Default Whilst in moult

just a quick one! Is there a decent dust mite repeller out there! My redtail is in moult and av noticed just how dusty it can be! Dust mite repeller just a precaution I suppose! Also what would be the best idea to tidy up her talons? There ok but she spending a lot more time in aviary at the mo so a couple of scratches and what not?

Thanks

If there's no evidence of dust mites, there's no need for any treatment. Why treat something that's not there? As for the talons, I presume from your post, which isn't very clear, that the hawk has scratched you when you enter the aviary? The answer is simple. Stay out and let the bird moult in peace.

Matt .. may I suggest that dusting with pyrthrume ,daisy dust, is quite acceptable and is the olde way and non injurious being from the Chrysanthum family...
It is the basis for so many 'labels' ......

Maybe not, if you could elaborate a tad , your initial post could be a bit less confusing.
