Maintain good husbandry practices.
Position cages to prevent transfer of feces, feathers, food, and other materials from one cage to another.
Thoroughly remove organic debris before disinfection. Chlamydophila psittaci is susceptible to most disinfectants and detergents as well as heat, however remember many disinfectants are respiratory irritants and should be used in a well-ventilated area
