Does Cy-Kick CS work on bird mites?
Cy-Kick CS is not labeled for bird mites.
It is important to be absolutely sure you are actually dealing with bird mites. We would recommend having a pest control company come out and do an inspection and/or getting a sample and taking it down to your local cooperative extension office. In the mean time, there are things that can be used for your situation. Sterifab can be used on couches, chairs and other upholstered furniture where you may spend time resting. This is a contact kill and will not leave any residual. Onslaught can also be used for a faster knockdown. Thoroughly apply as a fine particle broadcast spray using a hand pump sprayer to infested rugs and carpets and other cracks and crevices around the perimeter of each room. This is a residual and can be used every 90 days indoors. You can also put all clothes through the dryer on high heat to help kill mites and their eggs
We have had many customers use the above recommendations with great success. Most customers report that it can take several months to get rid of all of the mites. Finding and removing the source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good.
