    I prefer to use a bath/ dip with liquid ivory soap, veggie oil for vent area after removing eggs and for the head dip a Q-tip into a bottle of Sentry Natural Defense Flea and Tick Spray and rub it through his nead and neck feathers. It is potent smelling but will do the job.
    If you decide to go this route pm me and I will explain how to bathe him.
