Bath (1 tablespoon of borax per gallon).
I also use (1 tablespoon+ of vinegar per gallon) and this seems to work better. I just found out that my baby pigeons have lice this week and I panicked big time so I gathered each babies and dipped them in that diluted vinegar. It seemed to have killed them because they stopped moving. I am experimenting with this and see if adding more vinegar will work. These lice freaked me out. LOL!

If worse comes to worse, there is always that permethrin and sevin dust, but I like to see the result of this vinegar thing first. Yeah, I kept on experimenting.

Sevin powder. You can buy it at most hardware stores. Do especially under the wings and tail. Not their face though. Scat. A spray that you can buy at a pet shop. Permethrin sprays. Permectrin II . You can mix it as a spray, or dip them. Buy online at Foy's.
If you add a bit of epsom salts and borax to their bath water now and then, it is supposed to help keep them away. I'd spray the loft too, especially the nest boxes.
