    I have to treat for mites and am going to try the garbage bag with Sevin. Will my babies ever trust me again?

    Wear a really good dust mask; don't breathe it in! Your birds won't be pleased, but having mites isn't better. Mary

    Give them meal worms after every time you treat them, then they won't be so 'annoyed/distrustful' of you. You let me do this, you get this reward. It works great with chickens.
