F10 Fogger

http://scarlettsparrotessentials.co....aerosol_fogger

I have one of those above.

I am planning on using it tomorrow in the Macs Quarantine room (most of you will know about their problems, if not PM me and I'll happily explain).

I know I need to take them out the room whilst I set it off and it takes 10 minutes to be compeltely diffused. However how long til I can put them back in their room?

Can't see any information anywhere, not even on the can!

Anyone used one of these before?

I want to know the same thing. I can't imagine why you wouldn't be able to put them straight back in but I'd leave it like an hour just to be sure. I'm getting 2, one for each bird room. Sigh

Yeah someone else has just told me they leave theirs for an hour or two before going back in and opening the doors and windows, letting the droplets settle THEN putting the birds back in.

I know the f10 in normal concentration is completely bird safe so it should be ok.. If the directions say 10 minutes I think an hour would be sufficient. Only thing I would caution with opening windows to air out is that does negate a bit of the purpose with a full sanitizing protocol but I don't know the whole story behind it so it may not be something to worry about in your situation

Hmm, see I would assume it is completely safe and I use the other disinfectant no problem, I spray it on and leave it after using it to clean the cage down, I spray the whole room and myself with it

Don't know about opening the windows, I assume this is more for things that have an odour to them as it could harm the birds?

Might just have to see.

Need to find somewhere safe and easy to disinfect to put them for an hour or two.

Yeah, I would have assumed it was completely safe too since the F10 is bird safe... I spray it in my bird cages to clean with the birds in it... not directly on them, of course, but nearby and no harm done. I was just guessing it may not be safe since others were saying you needed to wait 10 minutes? I'm running on 2 hours of sleep so I could be misreading too The only thing that would worry me in the slightest is the delivery of it being in an aerosol spray - I thought something about aerosol was dangerous to birds, something added to it to get it to spray the way it does? I'm not sure, it would take more research to be sure. Calling the manufacturer would probably be best

Hmm could be.

It takes 10 minutes to totally diffuse from the can when you activate it.
