Most BH owners will at one time or another with the attack of young birds with "Kutu Babi" or ticks.
Kutu babi is a kind of lice that are commonly found on house pets such as dog and cats.
They feed on your pet's blood. This can also happened in your BH where these Kutu feed on your young birds.
If their infestation are high your young birds will eventually become very weak and might not be able to fly properly after the 45 days after hatching.
I came across a friend who happened to own a BH with lots of these Kutu.
"Pak Harry you will be surprise the normal dosage of the Fendona will not work. The best is to mix with a capful of Premis 200 made by BAYER.
Premis 200 is an insecticide designed to eliminate white ants or termite.
As a building contractor the chemical is commonly mixed with cement mixture before being poured on the floor of the building. The smell of this chemical in the cement will prevent the possibility of attack by these termite.
Be careful when using this product.
Product descriptions are as follows:
- A suspension concentrate
- For the protection of buildings against subterranean wood destroying termites
- Transfer effect ensures colony elimination
- Can be used as perimeter treatment
- Excellent safety story

One liter is about RM 400, I was told.
Spray the Fendona mixed with Premis 200 on the walls of your BH. Focus more on the joint between wall to wall and wall to floor.
The person who used this technique guaranteed that within one week your BH will be free of those Kutu and other insects.
