When I bought my liquid permethrin, I didn't realize it was to be diluted before spraying on coops.

I found out that the little tiny label on the container unfolds, and has the instructions there. Check yours out if you wish.

I dilute it 1.28 ounces per gallon of water for spraying the birds down.

If you have an active infestation you can dilute the Permethrin 10% to 3.2 ounces per gallon for normal infestations or 6.4 ounces per gallon for servere infestations, but this must NOT be used on the birds only inside the coop, on roosts/walls/etc. Close doors and windows before spraying and keep door closed for 10-15 minutes after you spray. I would suggest wearing a face mask everytime you spray.

The residue will last up to 30 days.
