There is a spray you can get that you spray the feathers with to get rid of mites on birds.
Talk to your local vet they would sell it.

    I live in Australia so the set up may be different. I rang a few local vets and none sells sprays for chickens. They told me to contact farm/pet produce stores. Both local pet produce stores recommend a powder called 'Pectene' (like talcum powder but yellowy/light brown colour). You sprinkle it onto the birds, rub into their skin. Sprinkle it also to their nesting boxes. As for the coop they recommended sprinkling hydrated lime or DE (diatomaceous earth) on the ground to dry out the moisture and to kill any hatchlings.
    After consulting a friend who keeps chooks, she recommended the same treatment for the chickens. She also recommended using slow release insecticide pressurised can for treating infested rooms in the house. These can be purchased from local supermarkets. My husband and I did some research on the web and, after treating the chickens and their coop, we deloused ourselves and washed everything washable in the rooms using some of the tips from link below:
    Thanks Brett for pointing me to the vet who then pointed me to the produce stores.

How to get rid of lice on small birds

No idea of your country but a 20Second google search revealed this;
To remove lice, it is recommended to use a mild pet insecticide, such as "Nuvan." After spraying the plumage, wait for 2 - 3 minutes and then gently ruffle the feathers over a white tray or plastic sheet to collect the lice which fall from the feathers.
I found that one great way to remove lice and mites from your birds is to sprinkle Sevin Garden dust under their wings and tail, and on the back. Check the birds the next day and if there are still lice present, repeat the process, as needed. I found Sevin dust [active ingredient: Carbaryl (1-napthyl N-methylcarbamate)] equally effective in getting rid of red mites.
Avian Insect Liquidator is another way to get rid of mites, lice and other insects in the birds' environment. This all-purpose insecticide from Vetafarm contains a water-based insecticide that is harmless to birds but effective against insects.
Sanitize and treat the birds' environment (cages, perches, aviaries, nesting areas, etc.). Secondly, allow your birds to bathe daily. Most birds enjoy doing so and if you provide them with a shallow clean dish, they will usually be happy to bathe without encouragement. Some birds like to be misted, or even sprayed. Sprinkling Sevin dust underneath nest bowls and around nests will eliminate all kinds of insects.

Do in doors parots have lice or mites that bite humans

Not a PC questions, but birds do get Mites which can bite humans, yet they cannot sustain themselves from it so they generally stick to the bird. Tractor Supply Company (TSC) or the vet can provide you the medicine to remove these pests.

Is it ok to give my dog human food treats once in a while?

It is; however it is crucial that you know what they can/cannot eat. Some human foods that you should avoid giving your dog are cheese, hot dogs, chocolate, crackers, and cookies. There are many others, you should educate yourself before giving something harmful to your dog. Foods that are a good treat include carrots, apples, lean meats, poultry and seafood.

You should never feed your dog raisins, grapes, garlic or onions - they can be poisonous to dogs.

Teflon peeling off inside pan and going into the food

Teflon is very dangerous. I discovered this when I got birds. Teflon is so deadly that if it is even slightly heated (by having a pan in the drawer below the stove) by having the oven on, it kills birds - immediately. It becomes airbourne and is that toxic. I know of so many examples of bird's dying from it. Can you imagine how tramatic it would be to be cooking and your bird drops dead. I had to get rid of all my pans because of them. And I'm glad for it. So it would be, not deadly, but not great to ingest for humans. Teflon is also in some heaters so its good to check that too.
