I am fighting mites on my bantams. I put drops of ivermectin on their behinds but as you know this only stops them for awhile because the mites are waiting patiently on the ground for their blood source to taste good again.
At this point I want to dust my entire enclosed chicken yard which is at least 12 X 14 or bigger. I believe the government has stepped to control our buying sevin dust. I can't buy it in those little canisters for such a big job. Can anyone tell me if there is anywhere left that will sell a large/bulk bag of sevin or even so-called poultry dust?
What do you do for treating large areas? I know DE is popular and I have some but I'm not sure how effective it is. Any feedback on DE? I'm about ready to dump a few huge bags into my chicken yard quick before the government makes me stop.
