    i looking for something liquidy i can spray in the coop to kill mites, i seem to have a large infestation in one of the houses (its the same house that gets infested every year...the only 'shop' bought house, all the others we made ourselves and have never had a problem!)

    i tried dust and powders but cant quite get it in the nooks and crannys of this house, so thought id get a liquid and spray it with a mister.


    so can i perhaps use ivermectin for the house or would that be useless??


    what else could be used??

    I use Frontline spray for puppies and spray in every corner under the bedding. Works great! You can get it at jefferspet.com It's a white bottle with blue lettering. Good luck! I also add some DE to the mix for added protection but the DE alone doesn't kill all of them off. Used with Frontline it's amazing.

    I would think Adam's flea and tick spray would work, available at WalMart. I have a generic version I got at TSC right now -- big bottle for about $10.
