    Approved pesticides.

    Anything labeled for use in poultry is approved when used as labeled. Anything not labeled for use in poultry is not approved.
    Here are some examples of approved products:

    Old list and post?????

    On that list only Bacitracin and Amprolium are still approved for layers as of Jan 2017. The rest are banned or by VFD only. (Tylosin is no longer approved even for VFD.)

    You can add Coumaphos which is now approved for self use as a wormer. (Which is weird as that is really old stuff that I don't think you can get anymore...doesn't it harm bees?)

    Here are the new listings for laying hens:

    Yes, as I read the only thing OTC is the bacitracin and amprolium now. Camphous is listed, but nobody is making that to my knowledge due to concern for bees.

    I used to dust my chickens with sevin dust but now I don’t since I found an easy homemade mite killer recipe. I do however mix sevin dust into my chickens’ coop bedding.

    Very helpful post.
    Have you ever heard of there being a lifetime egg withdrawal for Carbaryl/Sevin?

    That is allegedly what FARAD says it is, but many countries still use it, so to each their own. If you go to Canada and eat eggs there, that's what they use. :idunno

    That's what I thought.
    It isn't really ingested so shouldn't be in the eggs but perhaps on the shell.
