Is Onslaught the best product for killing bird mites in/around sparrow and dove nests?
I have a problem with bird mites in/near my house. Now that nesting season is wrapping up, I want to poison the mites and clean out the nest debris before blocking the areas to prevent future nesting.
We do not recommend treating any bird or dove nests directly. Onslaught can be used in surrounding areas on the property that you would like to treat for this insect and other listed pests. You can apply monthly on the exterior of the structure for control but the nesting sites that are near the structure should be removed to fully eliminate them. The source of the infestation is very important and is the key to getting rid of the mites for good. 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. 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.
