Melinda, I am not certified to handle pesticides so I can't give you advice regarding safety for use around your bird. However, I can give you some tips regarding the use of pesticides indoors. Read the label to be sure the product safe for use indoors. There are hundreds of products that contain Neem and their formulas vary. I would also talk to a vet that specializes in birds. Most pesticide label contain 800 numbers you can call for information on the product or go to their website. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
