Acadiana Aviaries Seed Mixtures, Egg Food & Tobacco Stems


Tobacco Stems


Natural Insect & Mite repellant for bird nest


Over the years I have used many unique items I have discovered, and Tobacco stems ranks up there as on of the best discoveries. Its well known to pigeon breeders who use them in the nest of pigeons as a natural repellant for mites and insects. So I tried them years ago in my finch nest and sure enough they keep the nest boxes completely free of any type of insect, ants, and ofcourse mites as well, These are the midrib of tobacco leaves. The tobacoo industry removed the soft part of the leaf for cigars etc. but does not use the midbrib of the leaf. Waste not want not the pigeon industry utilizes these "stems" and they work very well


I am offering one pound of TOBACCO STEMS shipped in a flat rate envelop by priority mail for the price of $11.50 The photo below show exactly what a pound looks like and its A LOT OF STEMS. Shown next to a standard pair of scissors so you can see the size of the "stems" they are about 12 inches long and I cut them up in to smaller pieces and put them in the bottom of my finch and dove nest boxes below the nesting material.
