AVIAN INSECT LIQUIDATOR ( AIL )
Cage and aviary bird keepers no longer need to be concerned about avian insect pests according to veterinarians at the Vetafarm Research Facility in Wagga Wagga, Australia, who have developed a residual insecticide and insect growth regulator for cage and aviary birds. The product, Avian Insect Liquidator ( AIL ) is promised by company veterinarian and marketing manager, Dr Tony Gestier, to control a wide range of insect pests including flys, lice and cockroaches as well as arachnids such as spiders and mites..
Detailed research has already proven AIL to be effective in controlling insects. A study on the effectiveness of AIL on lice in caged birds demonstrated AIL to eliminate lice from birds at the recommended dose rate of 1:20 dilution, at which, numbers of lice on birds in control cages (no treatment) were shown to increase by up to 90%. Where treated birds were returned to untreated cages in which they were in close contact with infected birds, the treated birds remained free of lice for 7 weeks after treatment.
The active ingredients in AIL are combined to produce a treatment which overcomes insect pests through direct toxicity as well as through hormonal intervention. One of the active ingredients in AIL, Permethrin, is a broad spectrum insecticide which when mixed with Piperonyl Butoxide (PBO), achieves a greater effect on insects than the effect of either of the two chemicals alone. Methoprene, the third active ingredient, is a synthetic juvenile insect hormone that gives AIL its residual effect and is potent in preventing the growth of juvenile insects..
Available in 500ml ready-to-use pump spray container or as a concentrate which can be diluted for use in a pump pack, it is recommended that the AIL be applied by spraying birds and their environment completely, with particular attention given to cracks and crevices where insects hide and breed. AIL contains NO hydrocarbons, AIL will NOT cause any damage to birds eyes or lungs.
