poison for ants and parrot
Hi I have a parrot that walks through the whole house, even chews on things. So I can not and dont use doom etc in the house of the fear that it may kill him (even the vapour). So what could I use for ants in the house? They are taking over. I have tried the ant traps but it only works for a while then they are back again. Thanks

I'm afraid there are no hard and fast cures for this one. Apparently ants do not like baby powder, you can sprinkle that around the areas you do not want them to enter. Products containing fipronil should be safe to use.

Good luck
