In a 1995 study by P. J. Bell it was reported that non-gravid air-sac mite females will often crawl off the birds through the upper respiratory tract. They also found that the air sac mite will survive for a short time outside of the bird’s respiratory tract. For this reason, it has been recommended that the day following a treatment for air-sac mites, that you thoroughly clean the cage to rid it of insect life, not avian pathogens. This can be done by disassembling the cage and surrounding areas and thoroughly cleaning all surfaces. Or you might spray the cage and surrounding areas for any insect life that could be living in it’s cracks and crevices with a avian insect spray like AIL (Avian Insect Liquidator), Pestex or Control.
