Other Hazardous Materials

We are providing this list of Common Household poisons, for birds & parrots, as a guide and information source. By no means, is this an exhaustive list of harmful chemicals found in the home.
Be aware of anything with a strong smell and if in doubt, just don’t use it. Read all labels of cleaning items that you use in your house, as most are toxic to birds.
You should also be aware of your neighborhood surroundings – if there is painting, lawn chemical spraying, etc – please make sure windows and doors are closed.
