The freakin' mites have found their way in to some of our collection too! Damn pigeons roosting in the nearby vicinity. I'm so angry I can literally catch snakes.

We've used Bio-Kill with great success in the past though. I will not let any of my staff use Frontline, simply because we had someone before almost killing off a puff-adder with it.

Reptile mites differ to avian mites.

Well, we have freakin' mites and not sure where they came from all of a sudden ... just strange that it has happened with the freakin' pigeons making their home here.

When used correctly Frontline is safe. Follow the guidelines and your mite problem will be a thing of the past.

Pigeons can be controlled with a pellet gun and a eager shot after hours as they come to roost. They make good croc food as well (after hours that is).
