DE does not kill mites or lice. I learned this the hard way with my coop. You need something stronger, I used poultry dust and mixed it with water and painted it all over my coop.Very time consuming but hopefully works. Also buy frontline spray or Adams flea and tick spray and spray all over the couch and then vacuum and wash cushions. Adams spray kills just about anything. Make sure your windows are open because adams spray is extremely strong and do not spray adams on the birds. Frontline is safe to spray on the birds and keeps mites and fleas away.
