    I was just browsing through my Jeffer's Livestock catalog and thought maybe these colorful ear tags could work for fly and lice control if they were hung here and there in the coop and run where they couldn't be reached by the birds. Some of them last up to 5 months, and since they were made for animals as large a cows and hogs, maybe they could work??? They have many different chemicals, but the one I think might work contains pemethrin.

    I'd like to know your thoughts please.
