I use .5% permethrin in a couple forms depending on what is available. Usually Sayers though. Never had a single problem and i pretreat every cage and ALL substrate as preventative maintenance.
I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don't know what to feed it.

I currently use Black Knight.... but I have only needed to use it to "pre-treat".
I treat EVERYTHING before it comes in contact with anything reptile in the house, especially substrate and porous objects from pet stores!
