Dang, I'm fighting mites again this summer. Last week I armed myself with 3 canisters of Sevin dust, a tarp and my mask. I layed them on the tarp, held them by the legs and dusted the heck out of them-vent, under wings, all over their back and neck, everywhere. I was so thorough. Then I cleaned out the coop and sprayed with the Sevin bottle that hooks up to the hose and sprayed everything in the coop including the walls, roosts, boxes etc. That was a Wed. Just for the heck of it I checked them on Fri. and they were still buggy! It had only been two days! What's up with that? I would have thought the dust residue would have remained on them after two days. Anyone else have that experience? I was covered in it myself. Glad I wore a mask.
Going to pick up Adams Dip tomorrow. I had good luck with that last summer.
