    Not sure this is the appropriate subject for this thread. Please redirect if needed. I have a large whitefly infestation on plants near my chicken day pen. I have one chicken, a silkie. I was told I could use a new product, Azatrol, and it would not harm the chicken. It is a botanical insecticide, anti-feedant, insect growth regulator. Anyone have any experience with this product? Of course I will spray only the plants and not the ground of the day pen, but there is the potential for drift. I would not spray when the chicken is present either. The only warning on the label is for aquatic invertebrates and fish and harmful if absorbed through the skin or inhaled. Thanks for feedback if anyone has used this product.
