The product states that it's safe for pets but it doesn't specify white ants sydney. I'm worried that the orange scent might have some adverse affect on my bird. I also read that this type of orange peel oil is what's used for certain scented candles and I know that I can't use candles. My question then is, would it be safe to use this product around my bird. I don't know if anyone uses this product or has heard about this product but the feedback would be much appreciated.


Hello LJ4RockPebbler,
I am not sure for the birds but you can check their official website http://www.orangeguard.net/

Our birds sences are better than ours. If you can smell it it is too strong to use around birds.

I bought a house that seems to be held together by bug poop. I have found that the black plastic roach traps have a bate and they work well. I also use the sticky paper traps and bate them with leftovers. It is amazing how fast those sticky papers fill up. They are great but I think my bugs reproduce faster than I can kill them.
I have to put my birds in cages on the back deck and lock the furries out to use a bug spray then air the house and wipe everything down including base boards since Rainbow has decided they are chew toys. I did it once and sweeped up bugs 3 times a day for 3 days. I need to do it again while the weather is still nice to put them out.

I am sorry I can't help you, Sharon, I don't kill anything but fleas and for that I use the drops you put on the dogs and cats and always bathe them on the fourth day of the application to prevent them rubbing it on something that the birds might touch - HIGHLY unlikely but what the heck - better safe than sorry, right?
