Thank you @emorems0 for bringing how harmful this product is to everyone's attention. I'm one of those people who likes to do everything holistically, and herbs are a huge part of my bird keeping practices. I always try herbal remedies before going out and buying medicine.
That being said, I just thought to myself "If DE doesn't work, and sevin is unsafe, then what are we supposed to use?" Then it hit me: essential oils. Bugs hate peppermint. Maybe by putting a few drops of peppermint essential oil under the vent/under the wings and rubbing it in could eradicate the lice. I don't have lice right now, but is there anyone out there that has lice and peppermint essential oil and is willing to try it?
Edit: Googled it, and ACV kills lice. They also don't like Tea Tree Oil. Maybe a tea tree/peppermint oil blend will help?
