I’m not sure to which product you’re referring. If you mean the ultra-sonic pest repellant, I don’t think you can use that around birds. They can hear it.

And I don't think they really work, either... I never bought one even though I considered it for mice because we once had a big problem with them [compounded by the fact that I do NOT use any kind of poison or glue trap] but my daughter, who also had mice when she first bought the house, did and it did not work -at least not for mice.

I use the sticky paper that can be folded into a box. I bate it with whatever I happen to have. I think my land as well as my house came with resident roaches.

That is the easiest way for me. I even turn them over to use the other parts inside when the down side get full.

To protect bird cages, pull them away from the wall and smear Vasaline on the legs.
