Permethrin dust or spray works fine, and is approved for use in poultry. Just wear a N95 dust mask to protect yourself, and powder or spray the floor and walls if possible. At least powder the floor under fresh shavings, and the roosts. Frontline is a wonderful product for dogs and cats, but NOT for any food animals! Mary
Hi Padfoot, yes. I do not use the Frontline that comes in the square packaging and holds individual doses . This kind is thick . The type we use comes in a spray bottle. It is a more diluted form and is not thick. We do not eat any of the eggs for 14 days after application. It is probably a good idea to not eat any eggs for 14 days no matter what you decide to apply to your birds. I hope all is well there.
