“If it smells strong to you, it may harm a bird’s respiratory tract.”

This is a good rule-of-thumb when selecting chemicals and implementing cleaning protocols for a single bird cage to a large aviary environment.  Although it has been traditionally thought that birds lack in the olfactory department, it has been shown that many birds do detect aromas and use them to some degree to select mates, forage for food, and locate nesting spots.


What About Disease Transmission in Aviaries

According to the University of Florida IFAS Extension, “pests may also play a significant role in disease transmission. Pests include rodents, wild birds, and insects. Pests can introduce disease organisms into an aviary by mechanical transmission or by being directly infected with and shedding the organisms. For example, if rodents have access to the feed bins, they may defecate in the feed, contaminating it with may potential pathogens such as Salmonella, E. coli, etc. Efforts must be made to control pests in and around the aviary.”

Aviary Products

Some birds, such as vultures, seabirds, and parrots have well-developed olfactory glands, giving them more of a sense of smell and taste.

Some chemicals can have a lingering effect, long after smell has faded, so it is important to keep the environment well-ventilated.

Our goal is to provide aviary products, techniques and protocols that are designed to reduce a bird’s negative reaction to the cleaning and sanitation process, while at the same time providing effective solutions and protocols to reduce cross contamination and the spread of infectious agents.
