Can anyone recommend a product which you can mix in with sand to help control mites and fleas in my Ostriches?
This interests me. I can't get close enough to pull the (sometimes much engorged) ticks from my tame-wild birds. I see them scratching themselves all the all the all the time.
The opportunity to examine them under their feathers, to determine the presence of ticks and ? and ?, would be most interesting.
A couple of years ago, I killed a four-foot snake, and examined it (before it went on the ants' nest). It had two dozen ticks under its scales.
