I'm having an ant infestation in various rooms of our home.
I've been using baby powder (talc) as deterrant after sponge wiping away ants (no pestacide used).
Is talc harmful to cockatiels? Either ingested or inhaled via airborne?

Yes it can be harmful if talc is inhaled because of a cockatiel's very sensitive respiratory system.

No I don't sorry, have a search on Google for non-toxic ways to deter ants.
