    I have 9 ducks and 9 chickens. I also have a garden that is being eaten by insects. I want to treat my garden with Sevin Dust, but before i do i want to know if it will harm my chickens and ducks if they eat the plants that are treated with the Sevin Dust?

    So glad I heard this. I've even been wary to use my poison ivy stuff in my backyard. Speaking of which, what is good to get rid of poison ivy w/o harming animals? We have lots of it,and about three years ago I started getting deathly allergic to it. Did anyone mention something good for insects? I, too, have tons eating the leaves on my three fruit trees and my plants.
