    Now that summer is upon us, the flies and other insects are out in force. Turns out that my Pineapple is part chicken and panics if a bug is much in the same zip code. So much that I am afraid she will hurt herself. (Just today she flew around to the point of exhaustion and had a scary landing) Is there any bird safe sprays or whatever that I can use?

    I live near a river so bugs (house flies, mosquitos are just part of life).

    Hmmm, maybe a fly swatter? Or some fly traps? Guessing the horrid sticky fly strips would not be a good idea to use around birds (plus they are gross, lol).

    I can not say that I have heard of any kind of insecticide that is safe to use around birds, I will certainly be keeping an eye on this thread as we have lots of really awful poisonous spiders that I can not always get to so they can be put outside or squashed. It has been concerning me about how I will keep their numbers down with my bird in the house.

    Insecticide is a poison designed to kill. It will kill your birds just as quickly as it kills bugs. There is NO safe spray that kills.
